Come celebrate Eid-ul-Adha with the community and enjoy the day together! IFN offers Eid-ul-Adha prayer every year at approximately 9:30 a.m. Typically, IFN tries to reserve a venue that will allow families to stay and partake in festivities together. The venue may vary, but announcements are made and registration to purchase parking tickets will be posted online on an as needed basis. Also, the night before, IFN does try to provide a Eid Bazaar (Chaand Raat) if enough vendors are interested.
For those interested in performing the Qurbani/Uddhiya themselves, IFN also coordinates this option with a local farm owner/butcher when possible. Space is limited, so keep an eye out for updates, announcements, and check back here for further information.
Lastly, Eid is always a busy time of the year, so if there are individuals who could dedicate some time to helping out with coordinating the event, don't hesitate to ask the Executive Committee how you can support the day.
