On August 15, 2021, WNYMuslims is having an event to celebrate the festivities of the Muslim’s religious festival Eid-ul-Adha, EC200, and the Independence Day of Pakistan at the Island Park, Williamsville, for the community of WNY. We have been celebrating Eid Carnival for the past several years now at MLK Park, Buffalo, on the demand of the residents of Amherst and Williamsville we are switching the venue to Island Park. In order to honor the exemplary public service of Erie County for the past two centuries, we are also incorporating the Bicentennial celebrations of the county (EC200) into our event. As we strongly believe in promoting diversity and having a diversified community, so for the first time we are combining the celebrations of Eid-ul-Adha and Pakistan’s Independence Day. Most of our attendees are South Asians but the event is open for all ethnicities and backgrounds, for which we are collaborating with Pakistan American Research & Information Center (PARIC).
The objective of the event is to promote local businesses along with the provision of light entertainment.
The event will have activities for people of all ages like:
