Tirgan, the Largest Iranian Festival

Tirgan Newsletter, Volume 1


Tirgan is around the corner.

Tirgan continues to remain the reflection of the Iranian art and culture through a four-day festival, in summer of 2011. The second round of Tirgan Festival will take place from July 21 to 24, 2011 at the Harbourfront Centre, Toronto; a city that rightfully prides itself in welcoming diversity. We are making a deliberate effort to include contributions from various ethnic groups in Iran in as many artistic and cultural disciplines as possible, showcasing internationally acclaimed as well as local artists and performers who celebrate Iranian heritage through music, dance, theatre, cinema, literature, and visual arts. Tirgan also features Iranian cuisine and special arts and crafts presentations made available by vendor kiosks.

This four-day festival is going to be an engaging, educating, and entertaining experience for a wide range of audiences.
