Every spring for the last 3,000 years, Persians have welcomed the Persian New Year by celebrating family, community, food, music, and dance.
In 2019, co-founders Lawdan Shojaee and Shideh Doerr wanted to bring the Persian New Year to Arizona. They set out to create a festival for the Persian community to both celebrate and share their traditions with their family, friends, and neighbors.
The festival has since received promotions from major television networks, radio stations, print publications, and community & event websites. The fourth annual Scottsdale Persian New Year Festival will be held at the beautiful Scottsdale Waterfront. We can't wait to see you there!
