The formal ‘dinner and dance’ event will include a fashion extravaganza, titled “Threads Across Time and Continents,” showcasing the history of Zarathushtis from Gayomard to modern day times, followed by a traditional dinner on a patra consisting of a host of Parsi and Irani favorites.  Once everyone has eaten to their hearts’ content, they are free to dance the night away till the wee hours.

ZANT CELEBRATES 25 YEARS
==========================
ZANT became official on April 23, 1989. Next year there is a reason to celebrate our 25th Anniversary! The ZANT Board has decided to keep the party going all year long, with every event we host we celebrate this special milestone.

Our community has grown immensely over the past 25 years and ZANT has much to be proud off. Our Children’s Religious class has been a staple for many years, our religious and cultural celebrations are well attended, and we now have a Center that we can call our Zoroastrian home.

Please note the calendar of events below. If you would like to volunteer as an Event Directory, we welcome your participation. With new ideas and increased involvement from our members, we all flourish and benefit as Zoroastrians practicing our unique religion and culture in North America!

We look forward to a fabulous 25th year for ZANT!
