The end of the Muslim Holy Month of Ramadan is celebrated in Canberra with the Eid al-Fitr Festival.
The festival is an interfaith, multicultural and whole-of-community event open to everyone. More than 4000 people attend. There will be a line-up of cultural performances from a variety of Islamic style of music and culture. Stalls will sell food ranging from Lebanon, Pakistan, Indonesia, Turkey, Morocco and many more.
There will also be stalls selling books, arts, craft, clothing, and henna hand painting. The big attraction for the children is amusement rides, animal petting farm, reptile show and pony rides. Eid al-Fitr is one of the joyous events in the Islamic calendar coming as it does at the end of the month of Ramadan, a time when Muslims fasted from dawn to dusk. As the celebrations now fall in the colder months, the festival is now being held in under cover, heated facilities in the Fitzroy Pavilion at EPIC.
