Big John’s Birmingham Eid Mela celebrates the diversity of the Muslim Community in Birmingham through its culture, food, sport, art and entertainment. Now in its 15th year, the festival is bigger and better than ever and there is something for everyone to celebrate.

The importance of Birmingham Eid Mela is that it is a celebration of Eid which marks the end of Ramadan the Muslim period of fasting.

There will be funfair rides, a sports area hosting a Kabbadi and Stone lifting, a bazaar with clothing, jewellery, music and craft stalls and a whole host of catering units selling traditional Asian food and for the 2nd year is being hosted by Big John’s.
