For the very first time, Campbelltown City Council will herald in the holy month of Ramadan with an evening bazaar on Lithgow Street.
Ramadan On Q, on Saturday 15 April from 4.30pm to 11.30pm, will feature a range of halal food from local eateries and food trucks.
“Ramadan is a significant time for Muslims that focuses on reflection and consideration for the wider community so I’m looking forward to seeing everyone come together to learn and share in new experiences of culture and cuisine,” Mayor of Campbelltown George Greiss said.
A joyous celebration will mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan and celebrate Eid al-Fitr with a large community gathering.
Eid Mubarak Campbelltown will feature dozens of tantalising food and market stalls, a range of cultural performances, kid’s activities and amusement rides on Sunday 30 April from 11am to 8pm at Coronation Park, Minto.
The family-focused event will also welcome characters from the popular cartoon Zaky and Friends to meet the crowd and join the festivities.
“The festivals, held in partnership with the local Muslim community, provide a wonderful opportunity for everyone to learn about and celebrate Islamic culture, and to build connections across cultures and communities,” said Campbelltown Councillor Masud Khalil.
Local halal-certified stallholders and restaurants are encouraged to register on Council’s website to be part of each event.
Funding for this project has been provided by the NSW Government.
