Oakville Nowruz Bazaar
The Nowruz Bazaar, a party and a gathering of people, is celebrating the Iranian/Persian New Year Festival. It took place in Oakville for the first time on March 13th and 14th.
Like all ancient civilizations, culture constitutes the focal point and heart of Iranian civilization. The art, music, architecture, poetry, philosophy, traditions, and ideology of Iran have made it a continuously important nation in the global community. In fact, many Iranians believe their culture to be the one and only reason why their civilization has continuously survived thousands of years of plethoric calamities.
This year’s Iranian Nowruz Bazaar is the beginning of a new tradition. According to, the Nowruz Bazaar organizer, she says that “the Nowruz Bazaar will be repeated for years to come.” It was certainly a huge success. Elmira says, “For me, Spring is waking up – The watering can symbolizes to desire to water the flowers and trees and to tell them too, that it is time to wake up – a Nowruz Celebration!
Persian members of the Dan Cooper Group supported the event and was present handing out tote bags and had an Instagram photo-booth, view our Facebook gallery here.
