Dubai-based shopping and entertainment venue Global Village has been extended by two weeks and will now run until May 2, 2021.
The silver jubilee edition of the event, which was to continue for 25 weeks, will now cover three weeks of Ramadan. The current season at Global Village was originally expected to conclude on April 18, 2021.
During Ramadan operating hours will change, with the park instead open from 6pm to 2am daily to accommodate guests over during Iftar and Suhoor timings.

Bader Anwahi, chief executive officer, Global Village, said: “Delighting guests, uniting cultures, and bringing our communities even closer together has been at the heart of our operations for more than two decades. Although recent times presented the world with many challenges, we are proud to have broken barriers in the travel, tourism, and hospitality sector. Ramadan is a month where families come together, and Global Village is the perfect open-air destination to spend time with loved ones. We are looking ahead to the Holy Month as a perfect finale to this milestone year as we continue to celebrate wonder.”
Musical fireworks at the Global Village also resumed March 4 onwards, after the venue announced on February 3 that all shows and street entertainment will remain suspended.
