Chaharshanbe Soori (Persian Fire Festival)

Chaharshanbe Soori or Persian Fire Festival, is a vibrant and ancient celebration observed on the eve of the last Wednesday before Nowruz, the Persian New Year. 

The event typically takes place on the eve of the last Wednesday of the Iranian calendar year, marking the culmination of the winter season and the anticipation of spring.

Join us for an enchanting evening of Chaharshanbe Soori, a celebration that transcends time and bridges cultures. As the sun sets and darkness blankets the sky, we gather to partake in this age-old festival that symbolizes the triumph of light over darkness and the renewal of life.

The venue will come alive with the flickering glow of countless fire bowls and the joyful laughter of families and friends. A kaleidoscope of colors fills the air as people dress in vibrant attire, and the sounds of traditional music and rhythmic drumming add to the festive atmosphere.

Participants of all ages will have the opportunity to leap over fire bowls, a tradition believed to cleanse them of the past year’s misfortunes and usher in good luck and health for the coming year. The crackling flames dance in celebration, casting a warm glow on the faces of those who take part in this exhilarating ritual.

As the night unfolds, revel in the magic of the moment, surrounded by the warmth of the firelight, the rhythmic beats of drums, and the unity of a community coming together to welcome the impending arrival of spring.

Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of a time-honored celebration that transcends generations and connects us all through the shared joy of Chaharshanbe Soori. Join us in bidding farewell to winter and embracing the promise of a new beginning.
