Global Village 2016-2017

Global Village Dubai 2018 – 2019, is the largest seasonal cultural extravaganza in the region that offers visitors an amazing array of festivals, shopping and entertainment in an open-air theme park. This entertainment and shopping destination is open from November through to April and hosts over 70 participating countries presented in over 36 pavilions, with more than 50 fun rides and 26 restaurants offering food from around the world.

Global Village offers a world of experiences. A place where the world can be found in a village.At every turn you can explore, experience and enjoy something that holds your senses in thrall. It is based on the five senses – sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch – of things that we believe you should not miss.

The Global Village was first launched in 1997 at the Dubai Creekside. The purpose behind inaugrating the village was to portray the UAE’s spirit of tolerance. The concept brought together various cultures from around the world, which is evident in the UAE already, with people from around 200 different nationalities living here.

In its latest season, the destination hosts cultures from 78 countries. Initially, all the pavilions were the same size. But, in its current location, things have changed. The India pavilion is the largest now and spreads across 11,000 square meters. The park currently spreads across 1.6m square metres, including the parking space. Infrastructure enhancements continue every season, which include revisions on the master plan to ensure guest safety and comfort. For instance, eight new pedestrian bridges have been constructed this season to facilitate the movement of the visitors.
