Nowruz or New Day has been celebrated on the spring equinox for over 3000 years. Popular within many cultures, Noruz features days of elaborate festivals and traditions.
Some traditional observations include cleaning and decorating your home, wearing new clothes, creating colorful powdered patterns on thresholds, lighting fireworks and bonfires, visiting family, enjoying picnics, reading Sufi poetry, and participating in the Haft-seen, Haft-mewa, or Khoncha meal.
Join us to invite spring and good fortune. We will decorate the Haft-seen or Seven S table, share this festive Persian dinner including the traditional seven ingredients, read Sufi poetry, and share wishes for the new year. Wear something new if you’d like!
