Aga Khan Museum says
Come celebrate Spring and the New Year at the Aga Khan Museum this weekend!

On Sunday, March 20, enjoy free musical performances by Mehdi Rezania at 12 pm and 1:30 pm.

Nowruz, "New Day," is the beginning of Spring that is celebrated by various communities around the world and marks the start of the New Year for the Iranian and Afghan people. It is one of the most celebrated festivals for millions of people in the Middle East, Central Asia, China, Indian Subcontinent, Caucasus, and parts of Africa, where joyful traditional festivities are held every year.

Nowruz is the time of vernal equinox, when the Sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day. For millennia, this moment has been a source of joy and happiness to people who developed enriched cultural heritage around the event. The significant role of Nowruz in the development of art, music, and culture in regional societies, transcends into a global celebration of Earth's revival and prosperity.
