Nowruz Celebration

Thursday, March 21
6:00PM - 8:00PM
Assembly Hall

“Nowruz” is the Persian new year and the start of spring. The English term “new” finds its roots in the Farsi word “Nou,” giving birth to the magical celebration being held for more than 3000 years – a tradition steeped in the history of humanity, embraced by over 300 million souls around the world. Beyond a new year celebration, Nowruz heralds a profound opportunity for personal transformation: People adorn themselves in fresh attire, embark on adventures to uncharted destinations, and greet strangers with open hearts.

Join us at the International House as we embark on this enchanting journey of renewal, in collaboration with the Asian Policy Forum and Persian Cultural Society. Together, let’s step into the mystical realm of Nowruz, where every dawn holds the promise of a new beginning.
