Held at Tysons Corner Center outside of Bloomingdale's, The Nowruz Festival is the largest complimentary event for the Iranian-American community that celebrates the Persian New Year. The event is held in every March and has more than 10,000 attendees.

It draws people from Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and other countries who
celebrate Nowruz as well as Americans who are interested in knowing more about Iranian culture, traditions, arts, crafts, and foods. 

The grand outdoor festival that celebrates the Persian New Year includes more than six hours of live performances, including music, dance, live characters, local artists, as well as a Nowruz Bazaar with dozens of booths selling a variety of Haft-Sin items and sprouts, Persian traditional sweets and pastries, crafts, and fresh and hot food.  

This event has been featured by local media every year and has been known as the runner-up for Best Cultural Festival by The Washington City Paper.
