On Thursday, May 16, 2019, our community came together to celebrate the City of Brampton’s first ever Community Iftar at the Rose Theatre and Garden Square. The event was a great success, boasting close to 1,000 attendees including Mayor Patrick Brown, Members of Council, special guests and Consuls General. Attendees enjoyed a spiritual stage program and cultural displays, followed by prayer and a traditional meal.

The spiritual stage program featured Quranic recitation, nasheeds (songs), Qawwali singer Shahid Ali Khan, Jerrahi Sufi Whirling Dervishes, Naat, stories and speeches.

This sold-out event recognized the holy month of Ramadan with a free community dinner at sunset, when Muslims break their daily fast.Meals were provided through generous donations from local sponsors.

Brampton’s Community Recognition Program is a series of cultural celebrations that the City is hosting throughout the year to honour Brampton’s diversity. These events are a great opportunity for residents to learn about other cultures and get to know the many communities that make up our city.
