Ramadan Nights Lakemba returns

ONE of Sydney’s most popular and vibrant cultural events will return next month.

Attracting more than 1.4 million visitors last year, Ramadan Nights Lakemba will return on Saturday, March 9, to Monday, April 8.
Lakemba’s Haldon Street will be transformed into a bustling bazaar every Thursday-Sunday from 6pm-3am during the holy month, with more than 70 local businesses serving up traditional cuisines from across the globe.
With tantalising flavours from Indonesia, Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, Cocos Islands and more, it’s the perfect destination to enjoy a delicious and diverse range of foods, and for many Muslims to break their fast together.
Mayor Bilal El-Hayek said people of all backgrounds were welcome at Ramadan Nights Lakemba.
“From its humble beginnings of a single street barbecue, Ramadan Nights Lakemba is now one of the best places in Australia to celebrate and experience Ramadan,” Mayor El-Hayek said.
“It’s a special place for Sydney’s Muslim community to come together, and a culturally eye-opening experience for non-Muslims alike.
“With more visitors than the Sydney Royal Easter Show, there’s no doubt it’s an event of state and national significance.
“Ramadan Nights is a wonderful showcase of our multicultural community celebrating together in harmony.”
