From its humble beginnings as a fireworks display in 2004 The Annual Islamic Eid Show (A.I.E.S.) has become Australia’s Premier Islamic Festival.
Stagged by the A.I.E.S. Committee (a not for profit organisation), the event see’s over 110,000 people from various backgrounds converge on Bankstown Showground for a festival celebrating Islamic Culture.
In 2010 The Eid Show as we know it today was born. After a successful 6 years of organising an annual fireworks display, the committee made the decision to expand and host the event across multiple days. The inaugural Eid Show included amusement rides, various food and merchandise stalls and entertainment; this proved a winning formula with over 19,000 people attending across the two day event.
In three short years The Eid Show has grown into three days of celebrations boasting Sydney’s second biggest ride offering with over 26 rides for both the young and young at heart, over 70 food and merchandise stalls and the largest fireworks display in Western Sydney.
The main focus of this event is family. Staying true to its core values the A.I.E.S. provides a cultural family friendly festival that showcases the colour and beauty of Islamic culture.
Welcoming one and all to take part in this wonderful celebration whilst ensuring the rich tradition is not lost, the A.I.E.S. has continued to grow and earned its reputation as THE premier Islamic Festival in Australia.
