P11LaurieFergusonI have been attending Fairfield’s Multicultural Eid Festival and Fair for many, many years.  This has given me an awareness of the dedication of the founders, their family and supporters.
It was the pathfinder and is the pacemaker of Eid celebrations.  Importantly it does not have narrowness – The displays, the performers, the food and the attendees cover the breadth of the Islamic World.  I can also say from my experience that it is also increasingly successful in attracting interested non-Muslims.
In an era of subjugation of religious minorities around the globe and increased ill-informed bigotry here, its message of peace, unity and harmony is crucial.
