Navruz Celebration a Huge Success!

Our 2014 Navruz celebration was a jam-packed, sold-out evening of fun, food, and festivities! Katta rahmat to everyone who attended and everyone who volunteered at this year’s event, which was the biggest ever!

Over 350 people enjoyed an amazing Uzbek meal of plov, somsa, naan, bo’gir’soq, salads, and drinks prepared by STSCA Board members and volunteers. Fruit and dessert were provided by attendees.

Highlights of the evening included addresses by Uzbek Embassy official Nurillo Abdullayev and Tashkent Deputy Mayor I.D. Berdibekov, performances by the Mystic Rose and Ivan da Marya folkdance groups, a raffle won by a Kazakh “babushka” who performed a traditional Kazakh song, and a lively, colorful fashion show of traditional Central Asian clothing. Attendees who stayed until the end were also treated to a “diskoteka” of popular Uzbek and Central Asian tunes, with many young children dancing up on the stage.
