The Southern California community is invited to the 3rd annual Eid Festival in Downtown Anaheim on July 18 & 19, 2015. The Muslim community will unite in celebrating their holiday, Eid-al-Fitr (Festival of the Fast-Breaking), that comes after the holy month of fasting Ramadan.
This festival, hosted right in the heart of Anaheim, will be open to the public. Admission and parking is free so bring your family and friends and enjoy carnival rides, live entertainment and diverse cultural foods.
This year’s Eid Festival will also feature a children’s parade, on Sunday, July 19, 2015, at 4 pm, at Harbor and Center Street.
Muslims all across the United States organize several small events at different times in order to celebrate the diverse and colorful holiday known as Eid-al-Fitr. This holiday marks the end of the holy month of fasting, Ramadan, which over 1.6 billion Muslims observe across the world. During Eid-al-Fitr Muslims celebrate in various ways including festivals, family and communal events, gatherings over food, music, art and/or entertainment. Our goal is to provide a one of a kind and uniting event for the Muslims in Southern California to celebrate Eid-al-Fitr together. Although this event will be hosted in honor of the Islamic holiday, we also aim to create a public platform of entertainment and fun for residents all across SoCal to enjoy!
This festival, arranged by dedicated volunteers from the local Muslim communities, is geared at people of all ages and all cultures. From diverse and delicious food vendors to carnival rides and face painting, we strive to bring it all. We invite you to join us in this unique event as a sponsor, a volunteer, a vendor or even as a guest enjoying the many wonderful activities and programs we have for you.
