Ramadan is a time for prayer and reflection where, during daylight hours, Muslims refrain from food and drink.  Lakemba Town Centre has become the place to go for the best food around to break the fast- Iftar.

The City of Canterbury Bankstown works with local business, NSW Police and Fire and Rescue NSW to develop an approach that supports local business vitality, ensures public safety and protects public infrastructure during the Ramadan festivities.

The Ramadan celebrations will boast a collection of quality food stalls to enjoy Iftar as a community.

The event is expected to be held in Lakemba Town Centre from Thursday 23 April to Saturday 23 May daily from 5pm-3am depending on the moon.  Dates accurate at time of printing. Check for current details.

  • Application closing date:  11:59pm Sunday 15th March 2020

We cannot guarantee the acceptance of stalls past the closing date.
