Message from from Stepan Kerkyasharian

The Multicultural Eid Festival & Fair is a significant event on the crowded New South Wales festival calendar.

It is the day when the Islamic community showcases itself to the whole society of New South Wales.

What we see is a well-settled community keen to celebrate a significant achievement in completing the physical and spiritual demands of the holy month of Ramadan for another year.

We also see that Islam is now one of the religions followed by Australians and is a well-accepted part of New South Wales community life.

I hope the Multicultural Eid Festival & Fair will allow the Islamic community to share its lively spirit with fellow Australians and I wish everyone attending this year’s festival a great day of family fun.
