Chaand Raat

Chaand Raat – ‘Night before Eid’ – is a popular celebration that traditionally takes place at the end of Ramadan and the start of Shawwal, starting with the festival of Eid al-Fitr.

Communities Together initiated the first Huddersfield Chaand Raat in 2016 and it has since grown into a major event on the local arts calendar, attracting upward of 3,000 people.

The event generates a lot of excitement as people wish each other ‘Chaand Raat Mubarak’ – ‘Have a blessed night of the new moon’. Preparations are made as participants go shopping for gifts, clothes and jewellery, and the event itself is a mix of music, stalls, food and celebration – an enjoyable event for all the family.
