Coming Up: Persian New Year Celebration at Habitot

Haven't heard of the Persian New Year (Norooz)? Well come and learn about it on Saturday, March 21st at Habitot in Berkeley.

The interactive performance about Norooz history is part of Habitot’s Persian New Year celebration. Families celebrate the coming of spring with Norooz customs like painting “tokhme-morgh” eggs and planting “sabzeh” wheatgrass. In their Art Studio, kids can use flower petals, seeds, and other natural materials to make spring collages.

The performance is from 11:00-11:30 am, followed by Iranian children’s stories at noon, 2:00 pm, & 3:30 pm in the Multicultural Reading Tent.

Habitot is open from 9:30 to 4:30 and costs $7 for adults, and $8 for kids. 2065 Kittredge Street, Berkeley. (510) 647-1111
