WNYMuslims presents ‘Chaand Raat,’ Night of The Moon Celebration

WHERE– 4110 Bailey Ave, Amherst, NY 14226

WHEN – Thursday July 16 @ 8:30-11:30pm


WNYMuslims will host “Night of The Moon Celebration,” an extension of their bi-monthly event, Studio Kalam. The event takes place the evening before EID, which is the Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan. There will be an array of food for guests as they shop through the bazaar or get a henna design. Nasheed, which is an Arabic term for vocal music will be playing in the backgroud as well. This is a free event that is open to everyone in the community and all faiths.

WNYMuslims is a community based organization that serves Western New York by creating awareness, encouraging diversity, and providing service. We work to become a platform for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike, and to connect and contribute by utilizing creative media.  WNYMuslims provides a platform for Muslims to create their own narrative by encouraging them to participate in the media and local events.
