【6/9 Daan Park】2019 Eid al-Fitr in Taipei Celebration!!
So friendly, and so open -- this is the most welcoming and exciting of cities!
Eid al-Fitr is the most important festival of the year for our Muslim friends, equivalent to the Chinese New Year. Friends and relatives come together to share in the joy. Last year’s Eid al-Fitr in Taipei celebrations attracted more than 40,000 Muslims and Taipei citizens. Faith doesn’t matter, and ethnicity doesn’t matter – Taipei is a happy cultural mosaic, this is one of its biggest and most charming happenings, and it is open to all.
For this year’s Eid al-Fitr in Taipei, in addition to a special market with Muslim offerings from myriad lands and a wonderful performance program, an additional highlight is Muslim-theme TED outdoor lectures, with well-known personalities sharing their insights and providing a glimpse into the mysteries of their lives.
On June 9, one and all are warmly welcomed to come experience the vibrant Muslim culture, spending a joyous day making new friends at Daan Park!
