Family Fun Day: Persian New Year Celebration
Bring in the beginning of Spring and the
Persian New Year with family and friends at the Museum of Ventura County.
Join the celebration and learn more about the Persian New Year, called Nowruz, with crafts and music. Nowruz translates to “new day” and is celebrated on the Spring equinox by millions of people across the globe as a season of rebirth and good luck. One popular feature of Nowruz is the haft-seen, a table decorated with seven items that begin with the letter “seen” in Farsi and other things of significance. Come see our beautiful haft-seen and make your own things to take home or add to the community table, like tissue paper hyacinths, painted eggs, and egg-carton goldfish. Dance to the upbeat and festive Iranian music and listen to poems commemorating the start of spring. This cultural event will be a fun afternoon for families and adults alike!
Proof of vaccination will be required on arrival for in-person attendees over 12 years of age. Masks will not be required for this event. If you would like a mask, we’re happy to provide one for you.
