Middle Eats: Eid in the City

  • COMMUNE Waterloo 901 Bourke Street Waterloo, NSW, 2017 Australia (map)

Come get your feast on! We’re bringing Eid to Waterloo for a night of amazing Middle Eastern street food, markets, music, photography and film.

Eid means festivity and feast. It marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Ramadan allows people to feel what it's like to go without; it encourages generosity, empathy for those less fortunate, and an appreciation of what one already has. Eid is celebrated with neighbours, friends and family coming together with lots of love and great food.

COMMUNE and Act for Peace have teamed up to celebrate Eid and the success of the recent 'Ration Challenge’, which just raised over $2 million to support Syrian refugees.

We welcome the entire community to share this celebration with us.
