Tirgan Festival: Iranian Arts and Culture Past

Aug 20-23, 2015 ,
12:00 PM - 6:00 PM
- Toronto, Canada

Free Event

The 4th Tirgan Festival is returning to Toronto’s Harbourfront Centre from August 20-23, 2015, bringing together artists from around the globe to showcase the richness and diversity of Iranian art and culture through their mosaic of world-class talents.

The theme for Tirgan 2015 is Homeland, for homeland is the anchor with which we settle in the diverse ocean of humanity, spanning across history and nurturing our identity as human beings

The last Tirgan attracted over 130,000 visitors to the Harbourfront Centre of Toronto and in 2015 the festival is expected to draw 150,000 individuals to the site from all around the world. The festival offers something for everyone, from workshops and activities to performances in music, dance, theatre, cinema, literature and the visual arts. Tirgan is also a great opportunity to sample savoury Iranian cuisine and a traditional bazaar, showcasing a range of items including arts and crafts, Persian literature, exotic sweets, spices, and even traditional musical instruments and much more.

Tirgan is more than just a festival. Tirgan is about building communities. By entertaining and educating its audience, 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. Most of Tirgan’s performances and events are available to visitors at no charge.

Tirgan Festival invites you to become a volunteer! If you are interested, please send an email to volunteer@tirgan.ca
