Eid Al Adha - October 26, 2012
Free admission to a spectacular day of celebration including a carnival with many fun-filled rides, shows, sport tournaments and a variety of international cuisines.
The Eid Festivals are celebrations of the two major Muslim holidays: Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Fitr. The Festivals are full day events starting with a large congregational prayer, followed by a day of family fun and entertainment.
The Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) is holding the 27th annual Eid Festival in the GTA. Last year the Eid Festivals were held at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. The Eid Festivals offer spectacular celebrations including a carnival with many fun-filled rides, shows, sport tournaments and a variety of international cuisines.
Many businesses come together in our unique bazaar to showcase their products and services to the community. The Muslim Association of Canada would like to invite you to join this grand celebration that has become a fabric of Ontario's heritage and Toronto's multicultural mosaic. The Event has had over 10,000 attendees come together to celebrate Eid which is an amazing sight for anyone to witness. The Festival provides a unique oppurtunity for your children to experience a true sense of Eid.
