Family Day: Spring Into Nowruz—Celebrate the Persian New Year! [CANCELLED]VIEW EVENT DETAILS
Asia Society and Pardis for Children have jointly decided to cancel our popular, annual Nowruz Family Day, scheduled for Saturday, March 14, due to concerns about the growing health risks of COVID-19. We have made this difficult decision after careful consideration and in consultation with community members, event participants, members of our Boards of Directors and, of course, concerned parents. Our decision reflects the feedback and concerns we have heard from our communities, and the fact that this situation is evolving too quickly for us to feel we can confidently guarantee a safe and healthy event for participants of all ages. This was a difficult decision which we hoped we would not have to make, but believe it is in the best interest of all involved. We wish everyone in the Persian community a safe and healthy new year, and we look forward to celebrating together again in the future. If you purchased a ticket, you will be refunded automatically by our box office.
Nowruz, the Persian New Year, marks the beginning of spring. Discover the spirit of Nowruz with traditional music, dance and crafts from Central Asia and Iran.
Co-presented by Pardis for Children.
