Art and Experience: Iranians across the globe will be celebrating Nowruz, an ancient Zoroastrian festival dating back over 2500 years which marks the beginning of the Iranian New Year.

Nowruz is the largest cultural festival in Iran, our equivalent of Christmas, if you will and is a time of great significance for Iranians, steeped in symbolism from ancient Zoroastrian practices which form the bedrock of Persian culture. Iranian new year is celebrated at the exact astronomical time of the vernal equinox, signifying the end of winter and the start of spring.

Art and Experience wishes a happy Nowruz for you.
