From August 27th to August 29th 2009, Turkish Cultural Center set up an Iftar (Ramadan Break-fast) tent at the West Haven Green. The Turkish community broke their Ramadan fasts with the local community.
Feeding the guests is an important act of hospitality in Turkey. Setting up Iftar tents during Ramadan and distributing free food to the community is a tradition in many parts of Turkey. TCC members wanted to bring this Turkish tradition to the West Haven community by setting up tents, bringing tables and chairs at the West haven Green. Around 200 guests enjoyed delicious Turkish Doner Kebab, Turkish Pilav and desserts over great dinner conversations three nights in a row.
