New York April 19 2015 – Every culture celebrates the change in seasons in some fashion, but few are as ancient, colorful and full of symbolism as the traditional ceremonies for the beginning of the Persian New Year, or Nowruz, marking the first day of spring.
Nowruz is all about hope. With the first day of spring, the New Year celebration represents rebirth and hope — and Nowruz is a way for our children to celebrate and learn about their cultural background, just like so many other people in America have done.

The range and variety of Nowruz celebrations reflect the richness and diversity of Persian culture in the United States, which includes the people of many nations and ethnic backgrounds that were once part of the greater Persian Empire.
Highlight of Nowruz celebrations in the United States has been annual Persian Parade in Madison avenue New York. As of March of 2004 few visionary Iranian Americans used this majestic celebration as a platform not only to advertise and celebrate our deep culture, but more than anything, pass the Persian Identity and Pride to our next generation.
This year marks the 12th anniversary of New York Persian Parade and is consider to be the largest Iranian parade around the globe. The Persian Parade is a non political, non-religious cultural event celebrating the culture, traditions, and contributions Persians have made to the global community, and is dedicated to all Iranian and people of Persian descent across the globe.
