BigJohn's Birmingham Eid Mela

Cannon Hill Park
Sunday 17th August 2014
1:00pm - 7:00pm

Proud to be British, Proud to be Muslim

Free family event with live music and entertainment

Birmingham Eid Mela celebrates the diversity of the Muslim Community in Birmingham through its culture, food, sport, art and entertainment. Now in its 14th year, the festival is bigger and better than ever and there is something for everyone to celebrate.

The importance of Birmingham Eid Mela is that it is a celebration of Eid which marks the end of the Muslim period of fasting.

This is a free annual event and promises fun for the whole family. There will be funfair rides, a sports area hosting a Kabbadi and Stone lifting, a bazaar with clothing, jewellery, music and craft stalls and a whole host of catering units selling traditional Asian food.

There will be live music throughout the day provided by BritAsia with artists such as Hunterz, Roach Killa, Mumzy Asif Khan, Shide Boss, Sama Blake, Bonafide and compered by Kan D Man.

The event starts at 1:00pm and closes at 7:00pm. Free public car parking is available at Warwickshire Cricket Ground and limited parking at Mac.
