Dear Tricity Community members,

Tirgan refers to an ancient Iranian festival. There are various legends concerning its origins. One legend describes how Iran and Turan, two long-standing enemies, decided to declare peace by drawing the boundaries between the two empires. Arash, the best archer in the Iranian army, was chosen to ascend Mount Damavandto shoot an arrow, with the landing location determining the boundary. Iranians watched in hope as the arrow flew from dawn until noon, expanding the boundaries of Iran beyond all expectations. What resulted was the inclusion of many diverse cultures throughout the territory of Iran. Tirgan became a celebration of that diversity.

Tirgan aims to promote a cross-cultural dialogue between the Iranian community and the global community at large. As a family-friendly festival offering youth activities designed to engage and inform children of all ages, Tirgan also aims to introduce children and youth to the beauty and brilliance inherent in Iranian art, music, culture and history.
