Tirgan Festival 2019
Tirgan family is excited to announce the arrival of its much anticipated biennial Tirgan Festival, July 25-28, 2019 in Toronto, Canada. Tirgan refers to an ancient Persian/Iranian festival traditionally held in the month of July, inspiring what is currently the world’s largest celebration of Iranian arts and culture, taking place in Downtown Toronto.
Through music, dance, theatre, cinema, literature, visual arts, food and crafts, Tirgan Festival highlights the richness of the contemporary and traditional art and culture of Iran. This year’s theme is “UNITY”; honoring our historical commitment to the celebration of diversity, talent, freedom, and equality. Tirgan Festival 2019 is brought to you by a commendable group of volunteers at some of Toronto’s most iconic performance venues including Harbourfront Centre, St Lawrence Centre for the Arts, and The Distillery Historic District.
