Eid Al-Adha – Eid Festival

Belfast’s Botanic Park was the venue for our Eid Festival this year. The weather stayed dry and throughout the course of the day over 5000 people attended.  Stalls, face painter, henna, Child Fairground rides, photobooth, drums and Food stalls filled the park. With the support of dozens of volunteers.

JazakAllah Khair to all the volunteers without whom the event would have been impossible, to the organisers: Zoreena & BIC Staff – Pashmina and Naomi and of course our sponsors who made our Eid Al Adha celebrations possible.

We hope everyone who came enjoyed the day. The Festival was sponsored by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Belfast Islamic Centre and Belfast City Council. Many thanks to Sylvia and Amanda from the Housing Executive, Leish Dolan from BCC Good Relations and Belfast City Council Parks for all their support.
