There’s not long to wait…

Global Village fans, get excited – the multicultural theme park will return for its 24th season on October 29, 2019 and run until April 4, 2020. The 159-day run will see more of the internationally themed markets, unique food and beverage concepts as well as regular live entertainment shows.

Haven’t experienced Global Village yet? Well, you definitely should this year – it’s one of the city’s top attractions over the cooler months.

The 23rd season welcomed a record-breaking seven million visitors from October 30, 2018 and even extended by a week to meet demand, closing this year on April 13. The demand increased by 16 per cent in comparison to the 22nd season, with tourists representing 30 per cent of visitors.

Global Village is an iconic hub for family-friendly fun during the cooler months, with over 160 dining outlets offering food from 78 different cultures, 27 shopping pavilions showcasing unique products from around the world, and a carnival packed with attractions and games for all ages.

At the end of the 23d season, Bader Anwahi, Chief Executive Officer of Global Village said, “We continue to remain in-step with changes in the entertainment industry as well as the tastes and preferences of our guests as we contemporise our core offering that encompasses shopping, dining, entertainment and fun-fair.”

During the last season, the park’s main stage hosted a variety of big-name performers, including R&B superstars Jay Sean and Jason Derulo, adding to an impressive regular array of shows and attractions. We’re looking forward to seeing who will be on the line-up for season 24.
