You are invited to the Nowruz Bazaar 2023 to celebrate the New Year, which for many communities symbolically begins with the spring equinox. We envision this to be an informal and joyous celebration of new beginnings and unity. To help you experience the true spirit of Nowruz, we offer you:

  • authentic snacks and treats
  • Uyghur traditional music played live by a band
  • Turkish, Uzbek, and Kazakh folk dancing
  • a fashion show by Uzbek, Kazakh, and Uyghur designers—with garments for sale
  • an exhibit of traditional decorations representing Central Asian cultures, accompanied by mini-lectures

Feel free to dress up in your favorite traditional outfits!
