THE ATLANTA PERSIAN

FESTIVAL WILL BRING


 IRAN TO PIEDMONT PARK FOR ONE DAY


On April 5th

Piedmont Park will be filled with Persian music, art, history and of course,

the presence of Iranian restaurants for a taste of its delicious food.




The first Atlanta Persian Festival will bring this 5000-year old civilization

to Piedmont Park on April the 5th from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm   Expecting about 5000 visitors, it will
feature over 20 vendors showing everything from films to live concerts of
Persian pop music, as well as traditional music and dance with the goal of
promoting the Iranian culture among our Atlanta community, and to tell the
story about who Iranians really are. Admission is free and it will give the

general public the chance to enjoy the feeling of taking a tour of Iran, just by

walking through the park looking at paintings and screen images, tasting

delicious gourmet dishes and pastries, and listening to live sounds of Persian

music.


Iranians have become an integral part of the Atlanta community and the

festival will have a representation of Iranian professionals of every sector

offering a great opportunity for networking. Anyone interested in art will love

the Persian rugs, paintings and other objects brought in by local businessmen

who are eager to show the beauty of their home land. A free booklet with the

Festival’s program and different information about Iran and its culture will be

available for the general public.


The proceeds of the Festival will go to Georgia Tech to support the
Persian language program. The organizers 
are hoping this festival will become an annual event to support other community 
cultural activities.
