Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah
Is it permissible for two men to perform the Salâtul Eid together? Is there a minimum number of people for the Salatul Eid to be valid?

The same conditions which are needed for the Jummah Salah are also required for the Eid Salaah.
There needs to be three people besides the Imam (four Muslims) for the congregation condition to be fulfilled. The presence of females or minors only is not enough. (Raddul Muhtar p.24 v.3)
Only Allah knows best
