Tirgan is a nonpartisan, non-religious, nonprofit Canadian registered charitable organization committed to promoting cross-cultural dialogue between Iranian-Canadians and the global community at large, through year-round production of cultural programs including festivals.

 

Our signature events are Nowruz and Tirgan Festivals which coincide with two of the most important ancient Iranian /Persian celebrations in the months of March and July respectively. The two events have turned into world’s largest celebrations of Iranian art and culture and a popular  meeting point for the  very best of local and international talents presenting Iranian cultural programs. Our festivals are held in  multiple prestigious locations in Toronto, such as the Harbourfront Centre and  the Distillery Historic District  in downtown Toronto and The Toronto Centre for the Arts north of the city, with over 150,000 visitors from within Canada and around the world, 250+ artists, and 140+ performances, talks, presentations, and workshops. We are constantly expanding our events and venues to accommodate more spectacular events and welcome more visitors.
