• A fantastical experience of ancient times

    On April 14, 2013, in honor of Persian Parade’s 10th year anniversary, shurka bazaar will transform Madison Avenue, alongside Madison Square Park, into an urban oasis.  A Persian bazaar of ancient times.  A fantastical experience of being transported to a destination through a cultural immersion, vivid as a memory and true to the imagination, yet far from anything one has ever experienced.
