Nevruz Day

Nevruz Day is celebrated annually in Albania on 22 March as Sultan Nevruz.

In Albania, the festival commemorates the birthday of Ali ibn Abi Talib (died 661 CE) and the advent of spring.

Declared a public holiday in 1996, it is prominent amongst the nations’ Bektashis (because of their Shia affiliations), but adherents of Sunnism, Catholicism, and Orthodoxy also “share in the Nevruz festival to respect the ecumenical spirit of Albania.”
