Celebrate Nowruz

Come celebrate the Persian New Year and the beginning of Spring with
traditional food, drink and a cultural program...

CGIS South Concourse
1730 Cambridge Street

This March, the Outreach Program, along with several other Harvard
organizations, will host a celebration of Nowruz. The Persian words
"now" and "ruz" literally mean "new day," and the celebration marks
the start of the new year for many people living in Eurasia. Nowruz
falls on the vernal equinox, a fine time for starting fresh, spring
cleaning, and of course, celebrating with dancing, singing, and
eating! We invite you to join us March 18 from 4:30-6:30 pm on the
CGIS South Concourse, 1730 Cambridge St, Cambridge. The celebration
will include an introduction to the holiday, perspectives on how it is
celebrated in different countries, a cultural program, and a delicious
selection of food.

Program Co-Sponsored by:

Outreach Program of the Davis Center for Russian & Eurasian Studies,
Outreach Center at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, the Prince
Alwaleed bin Talal Islamic Studies Program, the Middle East Initiative
(HKS), Harvard Persian Society, and the Harvard Iranian Student
