The fire festival is a non-religious celebration that has been celebrated among many different peoples for thousands of years to welcome spring and is part of the Persian New Year Nouroz. In Persian, the festival is called Chaharshanbeh Suri and is always celebrated on the Tuesday before the Persian New Year, which in turn falls on the spring equinox. Just as in the Swedish traditional Valborg celebration, nature's change is greeted with flaming fires, that winter is spring and that the light comes back.

The fire party is celebrated at the same time in Gothenburg and Malmö and in all cities there is free admission to the festivities!
