On behalf of the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) we cordially invites you to participate in the bazaar section of the most amazing festival in Ottawa.

Eid Al-Alfitr Festival offers vendors, artisans, and exhibitors an excellent opportunity to sell or feature their goods and services to a wide and varied audience.

Every year, bazaar participants return to the festivals, and new companies are added to the list, excited to be a part of the lucrative events that are consistently expanding. In our last Eid event (2019), over 10,000 people attended each of our events, and this year’s events are expected to be bigger.

Spaces at the festival are arranged as 10’x10′ booths, that can be joined together to create larger spaces as required by the vender, and typically sell out well in advance of the event. We offer marketing to all bazaar participants before the festival (on our website) and during the event.

We offer very competitive fees and special discounts, prices will range from $350 up to $500 and discounts can reach 15% for reserving multiple booths.

So don’t miss this opportunity and come join us at Eid Al-Afitr festival which is expected to take place “Inshallah “on May 2nd, 2022 at the Ernst and Young Centre (EY Center), 4899 Uplands Dr, Ottawa, ON K1V 2N6, from 8:30 am – 6:00 pm.

Free admission, free parking. 1st prayer 9:00 am 2nd prayer 10:00 am, Inshallah

Note: MAC follows the Fiqh Council of North America, which utilizes the criteria of the European Council of Fatwa and Research (ECFR) in determining the first day of Ramadan and Eid.
