Persian Parade, also known as NY Iranian Nowruz Parade (Persian: رژه نوروزی ایرانیان نیویورک), is an annual parade held in New York City, United States.[1] The parade was founded in 2004 by a group of Iranian Americans who wanted to keep the Persian culture and traditions of their homeland, Iran, alive.[2]

The New York Persian Parade is staged in the middle of the traditional two-week period of celebration for Nowruz, the Iranian New Year.[2]
