*FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE*

1st Annual New England Muslim Festival

Sunday September 25, 2016

11:30AM to 6:00PM

Malden City Hall Plaza

The American Muslim community in New England is organizing the first Muslim Festival in New England. The vision of the Muslim Festival is to celebrate the diversity within the Muslim community and create a greater awareness of the rich cultural heritage that exists within the American Muslim community.

"In the midst of the election season, terrorist attacks in Europe and instability in the Middle East ”says festival director Mohammad Shadid,” the Muslims in the United States and in particular in New England believe that their culture and image have been distorted by politicians and the terrorists who do not represent the faith of the millions of Muslims worldwide. That's why we have organized the first Muslim Festival in New England to celebrate the rich cultural fabric of the American Muslim community. Traditional Muslim hospitality will greet our guests that day.

Muslim Festival is a free family event which will include activities for all ages. The main stage will entertain festival goers with cultural songs and folk dances such as Palestinian Dhabka, Moroccan songs, English songs, English poetry, comedy show, and rap singing. There will also be fun activities for kids, such as martial arts show, bouncy houses, face painting, x-box game truck, and more. Furthermore, the traditional Souk (marketplace) will boast a wide array of arts, henna, Arabic calligraphy, cultural clothing and International foods. All shows and entertainment activities are free and open to the public. “The City of Malden is proud of its diversity and is excited about the upcoming Muslim Festival” says Malden Mayor Gary Christenson “we are looking forward to this family event and in sharing the rich Muslim culture, customs, traditions, and my favorite, food!”.

A highlight of the festival’s activities will be the Free Health Screening offered by Muslim physicians and associates.

The Muslim Festival will take place on Malden City Hall Plaza on September 25, 2016 from 11:30AM to 6:00PM and is accessible by public transportation with ample free parking on the street and at a nearby covered garage on 170 Centre St, Malden that will be free during the event.
