After Eid Al-Fitr or Eid Al-Adha, MAC hosts its annual EidFest to celebrate Eid, an exciting event full of joy and amusement. EidFest aims to bring community members together in a delightful celebration with carnivals, congregational prayer and cultural songs (nasheed). Our Eidfest is one of the most vibrant festivals of the year.
EidFest is adorned with a variety of creative activities for all age groups. Kids and youth enjoy bouncy castles, petting zoo, outdoor arcades, pony rides, bubble soccer, sumo wrestling, face painting and henna. Also, there is an innovative bazaar that has various booths (cloth, books, advertisements) that friends and family can appreciate. And then, of course, a delicious meal is served that caters to the entire family, along with popcorn and cotton candy.
The makeup of the Canadian society and the multi-cultural essence of Islam is reflected in EidFest. It is a beautiful opportunity for the wider community to observe and celebrate Eid with the Muslims. It certainly gives non-Muslims a glimpse of our celebrations.
