Taste of Ramadan – Bristol

May 21 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Event Navigation

On May 21st, Bristol will have its first public Ramadan celebration, organized by a group of clergy and community members. The event will include speakers discussing the role of fasting in different faiths, an explanation of Ramadan and its rituals and traditions, breaking the fast at sunset and a shared meal (iftar).

Ramadan begins this year in mid-May and May 21st is the United Nations World Day of Cultural Diversity, Dialogue and Development. This date was selected to be Bristol’s commemoration of this worldwide event. The evening will foster appreciation of Bristol’s diversity and will stimulate dialogue and development of new relationships.

The May 21st event will include acknowledgments of our common spiritual practices and how much we share.  The Bristol Interfaith Coalition invites you to attend this special evening at no cost. They ask that you bring your intention to learn and to share your traditions with others in peace and fellowship. For those who so choose, the group invites you to also fast for the day or maybe just delay your evening meal until 8:12 p.m. when after brief prayers, a dinner will be served.

Whether or not people choose to fast, all are encouraged to RSVP since we have limited seating. Please email BristolInterfaith@gmail.com with the number of adults and children attending or RSVP on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/1274513552651741/ . Doors open at 6:00 p.m. at the Bristol Boys and Girls Club, 255 West Street, Bristol with presentations beginning at 6:30 p.m.
