An award-winning festival celebrating the best in arts, culture and entertainment from the Muslim community gets underway today (Sept. 2) at Celebration Square in Mississauga’s downtown core.

MuslimFest 2022, the largest event of its kind in North America,  features both local and international artists showcasing their talents on stage.

The event continues Saturday and Sunday at Mississauga’s most popular festival venue.

Admission to the all-ages event is free, and the festival runs from noon to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

“Concerts featuring popular Muslim artists, comedy shows, a multicultural bazaar and a kids’ carnival are just some of the fun activities that are available to experience during MuslimFest,” organizers say.

They add that the festival has been named one of Ontario’s Top 100 festivals for the past 11 years. The first MuslimFest in Mississauga was held in 2004.

“It has also received various local and national recognition in the recent past, including Best Social Media Campaign and Best Greening of Festival awards,” organizers add.
