Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update – Monday 16 March
As you will have heard, the Federal Government has announced over the weekend, that non-essential gatherings of more than 500 people are not to take place from Monday 16 March 2020.
As such, and in light of this decision, we have unfortunately had to cancel the upcoming Ramadan Nights Lakemba event.
For events scheduled for June, July and August, Council will continue to monitor the situation before making a decision.
We are also putting measures in place at our community facilities to ensure that numbers do not exceed 500, and that practices of hygiene and social distancing can be enacted.

Whether breaking your fast or tasting new foods, experiences and culture, Lakemba is truly the place to be this Ramadan to share all that Iftar in Australia has to offer.
Lakemba’s Ramadan festivities has evolved organically over the years. Food vendors cook on the footpath, with crowds flocking down to break their fast and celebrate well into the night. Lakemba has become Sydney’s best place to celebrate and experience Ramadan.
Stallholder application for the 2021 event will open in Summer 2020.
