Calgary, Canada


Past since TabestoonFest 2014:

Persian Gulf Foundation (PGF) is ecstatic to host the first contemporary Iranian art and culture festival in the City of Calgary and Province of Alberta. With a growing Iranian population of more than 12,000 in Calgary, TabestoonFest provides a much needed opportunity to unite the Iranian community and engage newcomers in becoming a part of the cultural fabric of this City, allowing them to share and integrate the wealth of their artistic skills with the broader community.

Imagine your favourite Iranian musicians, dancers, performers, and artists coming to Calgary on one beautiful summer day. That's what TabestoonFest is all about: making the best of the short summer season while sharing the rich artistic traditions of our Iranian heritage with non-Iranian friends as well as our beloved children and grandchildren who have lived most of their lives far from Iran.
