Persian Parade is an annual parade held in New York City, United States.[1] The parade was founded in 2004 by a group of Persian American immigrants who wanted to keep the Persian culture and traditions of their homeland alive.[2]

The New York Persian Parade is staged in the middle of the traditional two-week period of celebration for Nowruz, the Persian New Year.[3]
