Persian New Year celebration in Seattle Sunday - all invited

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Sunday, March 18, Seattle-Isfahan Sister City Advocacy (SISCA) presents the second annual Nowruz in Seattle event honoring the ancient Persian New Year holiday and the contributions of Iranian Americans.

All are invited to join this free, family-friendly celebration from 1-5 pm at Seattle City Hall, 600 4th Ave, 98104. The program of performances will begin at 1:30pm and go until 5pm.

Attendees will learn about ancient Persian culture and traditions, meet Iranian-Americans who are vital members of modern America, and enjoy performances of Persian music and dancing.

Elected officials, including WA State Attorney General Bob Ferguson, as well as speakers from across the Iranian-American diaspora will talk about blending ancient Persian traditions with contributions to communities in the United States.

Exhibits will feature traditional Nowruz displays and handicrafts, Iranian-American artists and writers, and locally owned Iranian-American businesses including media companies. Information about tours to Iran will also be available.

Seattle-Isfahan Sister City Advocacy (SISCA) is a local non-profit made up of citizen volunteers – Iranian-Americans and allies – from the greater Seattle area who seek to reverse decades of hostility between the United States and Iranian governments by developing people-to-people relationships between our two countries.
