Country’s “Largest Islamic Festival” Comes to Philly on Saturday

If you happen to drive by Philadelphia’s waterfront this Saturday and notice 10,000 or so people in various styles of Muslim garb, you’ve stumbled upon the 21st Annual Islamic Heritage Festival & Parade. Organizers at West Philadelphia’s New Africa Center describe the event as “the largest Islamic Festival in the country.”

In addition to lots of food, live music, and “lectures by prominent international and nationally known scholars and leaders,” hopefully there will be a booth selling these “Chillin Like a Muslim” shirts.
