Wellesley Eid Festival 2024:

During the Eid celebration, Muslims greet each other by saying ‘Eid Mubarak’, which is Arabic for “Blessed Eid”. As it comes after a month of fasting, sweet dishes and foods are often prepared and consumed during the celebration. Muslims typically decorate their homes, and are also encouraged to forgive each other and seek forgiveness. In countries with large Muslim populations, it is normally a public holiday with most schools and businesses closed for the day. Join in the celebration on June 23, 2024 at Warren Center park. This is an outdoors event from 12-3 PM. Children of all ages are welcome (NOT a drop-off event), and this event is free admission.
