As Muslims in Nigeria and all around the world bid farewell to the holy month of Ramadan, they also prepare for the Eid-ul-Fitr festival. The day of the Eid festival is subject to the moon sighting but it is either on Saturday, May 23, or Sunday, May 24.
Nigeria and other nations are currently taking measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Hence, Eid prayers and other public gatherings have been advised against. Hence, thousands of Muslims will celebrate Eid in their homes with their loved ones.
This development has brought about Eidfest online. It is the brainchild of Eidfest Lagos: an event with the initial aim of giving the Muslim community in Lagos State, Nigeria, a memorable Eid celebration through social events that foster peace and unity, networking opportunities, games, and other fun activities.
Eidfest online will now take place on Instagram live on Eid day in lieu of the Eidfest Lagos celebration that was meant to take place at the Muri Okunola Park VI.
The team at Eidfest strongly believes this event will strengthen connectivity, inspire hope amidst fear, uplift souls, and reignite excitement for the future through this online celebration. Eidfest online: An online event that celebrates Muslims and the conclusion of Ramadan whilst maintaining social distancing and taking other precautions.
