On March 19, a Novruz celebratory festival initiated by Finland's Azerbaijan Association (FAA) will be held in Helsinki, the State Committee on Work with Diaspora said.

Helsinki's CAISA Cultural Center will reportedly host the festival to be attended also by representatives of the ministries of culture, foreign affairs and education, the mayors of Helsinki and Espoo.

Current year the Turkish Diaspora will mark the holiday together with the Azerbaijani Diaspora.

Azerbaijanis living in Germany will also celebrate the national holiday.

As in previous years, this year on 20 March this remarkable holiday will be marked in Dresden. Other communities in Germany are also interested in this national holiday of Azerbaijanis.
