The 9th annual Nowruz Festival plans to return to Tysons Corner Center this weekend.
The event will celebrate the Persian New Year with live performances and costumed characters.
Admission is free, and people can expect a bazaar selling Persian food, art and more.
“The Nowruz Festival is the largest event for the Iranian-American community that celebrates the Persian New Year,” according to the Facebook event.
More than 10,000 people usually go to the festival, according to the post.
“It draws people from Iran, Afghanistan, Turkey and other countries who celebrate Nowruz as well as Americans who are interested in knowing more about Iranian culture, traditions, arts, crafts and foods,” the post said.
The festival is set to take place on Sunday (March 15) from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Attendees can park on the outside lot between Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom, according to the mall.
