MuslimFest is an award-winning festival that celebrates the best in Muslim arts, culture, and entertainment. Over 30,000 visitors attend this annual celebration.
The festival features over 50 local and international artists who showcase their talent in various genres. From concerts featuring popular Muslim artists, to comedy shows, to a multicultural bazaar, to a kids carnival; these are some of the fun things one can expect at MuslimFest.
Launched in 2004, MuslimFest is a joint initiative of DawaNet and Sound Vision. These organizations brought together a pool of talented professionals, entrepreneurs, leaders, activists, and volunteers to craft a festival that is the first of its kind in North American history.
In a post 9/11 world that is filled with violent images and anti-Muslim hysteria, we at MuslimFest believe it is imperative to hold bridge-building events that positively engage young Canadians and dispel negative stereotypes about Islam and Muslims.
MuslimFest provides youth with opportunities to share their culture with the broader community. It offers education through the language of art, humour, and meaningful entertainment, to help break barriers between Muslims and their neighbors.
