Noerooz 1396 Gala

Dear Fellow-Iranians and all other friends,

ISA is once again proud to present Noerooz celebrations:

Date: Sunday, April 2 at 6:30 PM – 11:59 PM
Location: HUB Alumni Hall, University Park, Pennsylvania 16802

As you must know, Noerooz is perhaps the most ancient Iranian tradition that celebrates the first day of Spring that is also the Iranian new year’s eve. Thus, the Noerooz Gala held every year by ISA at Penn State is not only the most prestigious event of the year, but it is one of the largest and most famous ones in the US. The night will include dance performances, traditional music performances, live concert by Faramarz Asef, Dj performances guaranteeing you the best times on the dance floor and of course delicious Iranian dishes, so come full of energy but hungry!

We will be selling tickets on the following occasions:

Wednesday, March 22nd, HUB-Robeson Center, table #6, 2:30-4:30 pm
Thursday, March 23rd, HUB-Robeson Center, table #4, 4-6 pm
Friday, March 24th, HUB-Robeson Center, table #6, 12-1 pm

Tickets are available with cash or checks. 30$ for students and 50$ for public. Credit/Debit cards are not possible. Please purchase your tickets with haste as they are liable to sell out quickly.

Let’s have a memorable evening together,

ISA officers
