Eid al-Fitr in The Gambia

For Muslims around the world, Eid ul Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and prayer. It is one of the largest and most important celebrations in the Islamic calendar.

Is Eid al-Fitr a Public Holiday?

Although Eid al-Fitr is not a public holiday, businesses and schools may be closed because it falls on the same date as Labour Day in 2022.

Eid ul Fitr is a time to share great food with family and friends.
