Ramadan Calendar 2024

27 Feb 2024

As we approach the start of this holy month, we extend our warmest wishes to our Muslim community members. May this be a time of spiritual reflection, renewal, and growth for all who observe.

Ramadan is the Islamic holy month and is always held on the 9th month of the Islamic Lunar calendar. It is a time of fasting, self-reflection, good deeds and time with family.

To find out more about this year’s Ramadan fasting periods and local businesses offering Iftar banquets near you download our Ramadan calendar (PDF) or pick one up from your local library or Council service centre.

Each day of Ramadan ends with Iftar, where families and friends come together to break their fast. As part of Merri-bek City Council’s Ramadan celebration, we want to introduce you to restaurants around the municipality that will be open for Iftar.

From gorgeous Afghan food in Glenroy and tasty Thai in Coburg, to all the Middle Eastern sweets you can eat, we have included a list of restaurants and their locations, on our Love Merri-bek, Buy Local webpage, so you can gather and break the fast together.
