Tirgan presents Iranian art and culture through a four-day festival in 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 of Iranian descent, 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 is going to be an engaging, educating, and entertaining experience for a wide range of audiences.
We are extremely excited to share our rich heritage with the young Iranian generation, and all Iranian and non-Iranian visitors from various countries around the world who will participate in Tirgan during the days of the event in July every two years.
