On June 14, 2017, at 7 p.m., Mayor Rick Kriseman and Muslim leaders from throughout Tampa Bay will host St. Petersburg’s first ever Iftar Dinner welcoming residents of all faiths to celebrate the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Iftar is the evening meal when Muslims end their daily Ramadan fast at sunset. The event will be held at St. Petersburg’s historic Coliseum, located at 535 Fourth Avenue North.
Mayor Kriseman said “Now more than ever, we must be expressive in our love and respect for people of all faiths. I am excited to bring the community together to honor our Muslim brothers and sisters.”
Abdul Karim Ali, the president of the Tampa Bay Area Muslim Association, said: “We know that breaking bread together helps a community work together for a common cause, and so we thank Mayor Kriseman and his team for their leadership in ensuring that the sun shines bright on all residents and faiths in St. Petersburg.”
