The 23rd annual Ismaili Muslim Stampede breakfast left people with full bellies and big smiles on Saturday, July 6 at the Jamatkhana Centre in the city's northeast. The breakfast featured the traditional east African side dish Bharazi, which contains pigeon peas in coconut sauce, as well as eggs and pancakes. 

It's a way of bringing people together and celebrating what Calgary has to offer.

From the 4 a.m. start of the prepping of the Chai tea and Bharazi to the entertainment and feeding of thousands of people, the Ismaili Muslim community did not disappoint! Watch our video below for a behind-the-scenes experience of the work that goes in to putting on a Stampede breakfast.
