For the past five years, MABELLEarts has been working with community members of all ages and backgrounds to create inter-cultural celebrations that mark the holy month of Ramadan. Each year, residents from a range of cultural backgrounds gather in the Mabelle Park to join their Muslim neighbours as they break their Ramadan fast.
Join us for musical performances, art-making, stories around the fire, and a meal served at Iftar. Free! Everyone welcome!
