The Atlanta Persian Festival was established in 2013 by the Persian Community Center of Atlanta to promote the Persian culture in Atlanta. The Festival has fundamental components that aim to accomplish this goal. From Persian music to food, dance, and other cultural activities to show the people of Atlanta what the Persian culture is about. The venue is in the heart of Atlanta, Piedmont Park. Many cultural activities take place at Piedmont Park, which gives us the opportunity to expand our audience. We have been recognized by event organizers as one of the most successful cultural events in Atlanta. The Festival had over 8,000 visitors in 2014, and more than 13.000 in 2016 which was not anticipated by anyone. We are building upon our success from last year to make the 2017 Festival even bigger, to promote the Persian culture and community in Atlanta.
