Nowruz celebration in Thessaloniki

nowrooz-1Every year in early spring in many eastern countries, the New Year's Day is celebrated, one of the ancient celebrations marking the start of many good things. This is the first day of spring when nature wakes up.

This day is celebrated not only by Afghanis, but by other peoples in Iran, Albania, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Georgia, Kurdistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan and others.

The International Day of Nowruz was established by a decision of the UN General Assembly in 2010 to honour a spring festival with a history of 3,000 years.

Nowruz was officially registered on the UNESCO List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
To celebrate this day the Afghan community of Thessaloniki organised a cultural event on Friday March 22, 2013 at the Music Center of Thessaloniki, in front of the port.

The event was held with the support of the Thessaloniki Municipality and Symβiosis.
