In a recent conversation I was told that the current Jewish calendar was only set till the year 6,000. There was conjecture as to what will happen after that time (assuming Moshiach has not yet arrived). The general consensus was that there will no longer be any Jewish holidays. I would like to know if this this correct. If not please provide an explanation as to what will happen when the calendar runs out.

Do you have a Source? The calendar will be working fine then (though sightly later). – Ariel K Sep 29 '13 at 23:52
Is this not a duplicate of judaism.stackexchange.com/q/23060? Ping @Menachem. – msh210 Oct 2 '13 at 17:54
