The staff and board of CAIR-Chicago would like to invite you to our fifth annual “Taste of Ramadan,” which is set to take place this summer at our new, centrally located downtown office. There is a $5 suggested donation at the door.

Last year, more than 300 community members attended the event. Check out more pictures from previous Taste of Ramadan iftars here.

‘Iftar’ is an Arabic term that refers to the evening meal that breaks the daylight fast that Muslims observe during Ramadan. The meal is often organized as a community so that Muslims can celebrate the breaking of their fast together.

The sun is due to set on Wednesday, July 17th at approximately 8:23pm, which is when the Iftar will commence.

Last year, hundreds of community members attended the event and enjoyed food prepared by CAIR-Chicago staff, interns, family and volunteers. Attendees are invited to bring a dish or beverage that represents their heritage or culture. If you would like to contribute to the Taste of Ramadan iftar, please let us know on the RSVP page what you plan to bring and what global cuisine it represents.

For any questions, call 312-212-1520 or email Outreach Coordinator Gerald Hankerson at
