Tirgan is a non-profit, non-religious and non-partisan cultural organization committed to promoting a cross-cultural dialogue between the Iranian-Canadians and the larger Canadian community through the production of year-round artistic and cultural activities including cultural festivals.

Our signature event is the Tirgan Festival that refers to an ancient Persian/Iranian festival traditionally held in the month of July. This festival inspires what is currently world’s largest celebration of Iranian arts and culture, and takes place biennially at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto with over four days, 150,000 visitors from Canada and around the world, 200+ artists, and 100+ performances, talks, presentations, and workshops.

The Nowruz Festival is another major three-day festival that is held annually in March at the Toronto Centre for the Arts to celebrate the arrival of spring and the Persian/Iranian New Year.
