November 12, 2018

TEHRAN – Tehran’s Niavaran Cultural-Historical Complex will be hosting a pomegranate festival dedicated to western Iranian farmers and producers.

The event will be running from November 15 to 21 and it will embrace regional live performances and various cultural traditions, IRNA reported.

Every year in autumn, many pomegranate farmers hold such festivals to thank God and to celebrate harvest season. Throughout the Orient, the pomegranate has since earliest times occupied a position of importance alongside the grape and the fig.
