Taste of Ramadan
Every year, as part of an interfaith dinner program, the Muslim Coalition of Connecticut (MCCT) hosts a free educational program during the holy month of Ramadan, inviting religious leaders of Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) for a night of knowledge, discussion, and sharing a meal.
MCCT hosts an annual Leadership Banquet to award both community members and partners that have exemplified leadership in an area of importance to the Muslim and Interfaith community in Connecticut. Past Leadership Banquet themes have included “Refugee Experience”, “Creating Safe Communities”, “Higher Education”, “Healthcare”, and “Environmental Issues”, among others.
"...the believers are like bricks of a building, each part strengthening the other."

Every year, the Eid Carnival brings together the Muslim community in celebration of Eid Ul-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of Ramadan, the month of Fasting. Over 1,500 Muslims from CT and neighboring states celebrate Eid Ul-Fitr at Lake Compounce in Bristol, CT each year.
