(OKLAHOMA CITY, OK 7/29/2020) – On Friday, July 30, the Oklahoma chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-OK) will host its first-ever Eid Al-Adha Block Party. This event is free and open to the public. We will have a tent set up in the parking lot of the CAIR-OK office, and there will be plenty of parking around the building. We will feature local food trucks from around OKC and live music, henna artists, and more.
“Now more than ever, the Oklahoma Muslim community needs a morale boost and an opportunity to come together,” said CAIR-OK Executive Director Adam Soltani. “After more than 18 months of COVID restrictions and lack of community events, we look forward to welcoming our Muslim friends and people of other faiths to celebrate the Eid holiday and show why Oklahoma is such an amazing place for us all.”

Eid Al-Adha commemorates the end of the yearly Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. With Hajj pilgrimage attendance restricted due to COVID protocols, this event provides an opportunity for the Muslim community to replicate the feeling of togetherness and celebration at home.
