Ramadan Nights Lakemba 2024 was a huge success as record-breaking numbers flocked to the event, held on Haldon Street, to experience the rich food, culture and traditions.

More than 1.57 million people visited the month-long event to break their fast, while others wanted experience what Ramadan is all about. 

We thank all those who attended from near and far to soak up the atmosphere and allow their tastebuds to be tempted by all that was on offer. 

The event, which was held over 31 days, saw visitors indulge in traditional Islamic foods as well as street food favourites and innovative creations from across the globe, including camel burgers, shawarma, knafeh, pani-puri, Kashmiri chai, halal dumplings, fresh lemonade, charcoal meat skewers, flaming paan leaves and camel milk hot chocolate.

Council had in place street closures and hundreds of staff and external contractors to ensure safety and strict food and hygiene measures were met.

The final weekend saw hundreds of people from the Muslim community gather on Haldon Street to join in Tarawih (prayers) and publicly express their faith.

We are grateful to our event funders, sponsors and supporters, including Multicultural NSW, Western Union, SBS, Sydney Water, MySat and Dessert Boxes.

About Ramadan

Ramadan is the most sacred month of the year in Islamic culture. The month of Ramadan is spent by people of Muslim faith fasting during the daylight hours from dawn to sunset. At the end of each day’s fast, Muslims gather for Iftar, the evening meal to break their fast.
