An international bazaar, food fest, art exhibits and festival stages will combine faith traditions and Canadian culture when MuslimFest returns to the GTA over Labour Day weekend.
The annual festival will take place at Celebration Square in Mississauga from August 31 to September 2 and is free to attend.
“Over the past 15 years MuslimFest has become a must-attend event for Canadian Muslims throughout Ontario,” says Tariq Syed, Event Director of the Festival. “We encourage people from all backgrounds to visit the festival as it provides Muslims with opportunities to share our culture with the broader community. We believe in education through the language of art, humour, and meaningful entertainment; something we feel can create new connections throughout our community.”
Among the many highlights happening at the festival this year, look forward to a line-up of entertainers, art exhibits, workshops on Arabic calligraphy and paper crafts, and a vibrant bazaar stocked with everything from fragrant oils and Turkish clothing to Middle Eastern ornaments and more.
Food-wise, attendees can look forward to Yemeni food by Monasabah, Watan Kabob, Hailed X Coffee, Ishtar Iraqi Foods, Dimkin Crepes and more.
When: August 31 to September 2, noon to 11 pm
Where: Celebration Square, 300 City Centre Drive, Mississauga
