Dubai's Global Village opens every year from October to April and is a celebration of culture from around the world. With thrilling rides, incredible shows, and a vast range of food from every corner of the globe, there’s something to delight every visitor, young or old! Since the attractions aren’t open all year round tickets are limited and it’s recommended to book in advance.

It’s Different Every YearIf you’ve visited the Dubai Global Village before, don’t rule out a second or third trip. Each year the exhibition gets larger and more elaborate, with redesigned pavilions and new shows and events. It’s definitely worth one visit every year if you’re local.

See All the PavilionsThere are 28 different pavilions in the Global Village, each hosting a range of shops and stalls where you can see and buy items from the region. The largest area represented is the Middle East and North Africa, which has 13 pavilions, then South Asia and Europe, which each have 4. Africa and the Far East have 3 pavilions apiece, while the 48 countries of the Americas are represented in a single pavilion. Each pavilion is a work of art, often in the shape of one of that nation’s major attractions.
Go HungryThere are so many incredible food stalls in the food court, serving dishes from around the world. You’ll definitely want to sample at least one or two during your visit, so make sure that you don’t eat too much before you arrive.
Be Prepared to BarterThe Global Village Dubai is one of the best places to shop for unique souvenirs, with authentic wares from each nation represented. However, you’ll be expected to haggle in order to get a deal, so go prepared with your best tactics.

The Global Village: The World in One Attraction

There’s a lot to see and do inside the Global Village, which is home to shops, restaurants, and concert venues.

The World’s Biggest Entertainment Project

It’s open for about 5 to 6 months of the year and since its first opening in 1996, it has grown to welcome over 5 million visitors each season. It’s also a popular concert venue, having hosted artists such as Elissa, Jason Derulo, and Liam Payne. Entry to the pavilions and the main concert areas only costs AED 15 per person, but there are other attractions and rides inside which can be enjoyed by purchasing a Wonder Pass.

Shop Till You Drop

With over 28 pavilions selling goods from 90 countries from five of the world’s continents, there’s plenty of opportunities to find a unique souvenir. Spend your time browsing the different stalls and try your hand at haggling with the vendors to get a great deal.

Enjoy the Carnaval

Thrill-seekers will find plenty to keep them occupied in the Carnaval area, which features 31 rides, 25 games of skill, and over 100 arcade games to try. There are also child-sized rides for younger visitors and family rides that everyone can enjoy together. You’ll need a Wonder Pass with points on it to access the rides.

Delicious Treats from Across the Globe

In addition to the food court, the Global Village hosts kiosks, roaming food trolleys, restaurants and cafés, so you’re sure not to go hungry during your visit. Arrive hungry so that you can sample delicious meals from several of the countries exhibiting at the village.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is it possible to visit Global Village?

The 2023/24 season began on October 18th, 2023, and finishes on April 28th, 2024. The village opens at 4 pm every day, with tickets available in advance via the app or 3rd party providers.

Do I need a separate ticket to visit each attraction?

Once you’ve paid your entry fee to the Global Village, you can access the majority of concerts, shows, and entertainment free of charge. However, you’ll have to buy a Wonder Pass to use the rides in the Carnaval, to see the Circus Circus show, get access to Ripley’s Believe it or Not galleries, and to watch the Stunt Show Survivor. Wonder Passes can be loaded up with different amounts of points, and during your visit you can exchange the points for access to attractions. The cheapest Wonder Pass package starts at AED 105 and the most expensive costs AED 1,000. Read more.

What events are on at the Global Village?

There are multiple concerts or shows on the Main Stage and the Kids’ Theater every day this season, but there are a few events you might want to take extra time for. There’s a fireworks display every Thursday and Friday at 9 pm, and a Parade of Tolerance takes to the park’s streets every Monday at 7.25 pm. The Circus Circus show and the Stunt Show Survivor event take place several times each day, with each having one day off a week. Check the events calendar before your visit if you want to see any show in particular. Read more.

Absolutely! In addition to the Kids’ Theater, which hosts a range of shows for all ages, there’s a daycare center (Cheeky Monkey’s) that can take care of your little ones while you explore.
