Dance, Play and Feast your way at Nowruz: A Persian New Year!

Please note: This event has already occurred.
There might not be a ball drop at midnight, but there will be plenty of ways to ring in the new year Persian style. In addition to Persian dancing and food, families can learn about fire jumping, listen to a storyteller and try their hand at Persian games including chess and backgammon. And don't miss the exhibit "The Cyrus Cylinder and Ancient Persia: A New Beginning," which brings the unique artifact to America for the first time.
