The Ismaili Council for British Columbia
invites you to join us to celebrate
the Festival of Navroz
Many communities and cultures around the world celebrate the festival of Navroz (Nowruz) as the beginning of a new year and the first day of spring. More generally, it signifies a time of spiritual renewal and physical rejuvenation, as well as the spirit of gratitude for blessings and an outlook of hope and optimism towards the future.
The festival of Navroz celebrates a century-old, agrarian custom that over time was integrated into various cultures and faith traditions. Today, Navroz is celebrated in many parts of the Middle East and Central South Asia, particularly among people influenced by Persian and Turkic civilizations.
