Norouz Celebration

Norouz, the traditional festival of Spring, is celebrated across the Middle East, Central Asia, the Caucasus, the Black Sea Basin, and the Balkans. It marks the start of the new year, with the name "Norouz" coming from Avestan, meaning "new daylight". This holiday is meant to promote the values of peace and solidarity between generations and within families, as well as reconciliation and neighborliness.

Celebrate Norouz with us by learning about the festival's history and traditions, and sampling of Iranian food! Join us to color eggs for the Persian new year table and enjoy some traditional Persian music and dances.

This event is free of charge and open to the Texas State University Community.
