Celebrations continue at Global Village's all-woman street festival


Global Village has lined up an international line-up of street artists and entertainers at The Happiness Street Fest - Women's Edition, which kicked off on March 8, coinciding with International Women's Day.

Unique routines from 10 female street artists and performers from around the world will continue until International Happiness Day on March 20 at the multicultural family destination.

As part of Happiness Fest, Global Village has also announced the “Wonder Rides” activation, though which guests can discover iconic taxis from the United States, Cuba, Mexico, Japan, Thailand and Lebanon, and participate in entertaining backseat challenges.

Once a challenge has been completed successfully, the participant will be entered into a raffle draw for a chance to win AED 27,000.

During Happiness Fest, visitors to Global Village can look forward to the performances of award winning artists such as The High-Flying Ariel Muse from Australia, Switzerland’s The Queen of the Bicycle and The Sharp Shooting Sensation from Germany.

With over 30 live performances every day, here are some of the other must-watch shows:

  • Unbelievable Magic: Billy Kidd from the UK will have you second guessing your own eyes! Witness the artistry of her sleight of hand skills as a close-up artist that has amazed people world-wide.
  • Circus of one: Watch the Spanish Cata Catarsis bring order, chaos, tears, and laughter together in her one-woman circus show. This clown will have you begging for more!
  • She puts the Fun in Funambulist: Espuma Bruma brings the action from Argentina! Interact with the artist as she balances combing her hair, putting on high-heels and makeup, all while walking a tight-rope!
  • Spinning into a more wonderful world: Watch Canadian Julia Perron play with fire, jump through ariel hoops, and sing in the German Wheel show.

These acts and more will be performing every night until March 20.
