Ridván begins

April 20

(For all holy days, observance begins at sunset on the evening before)

Baha’i communities worldwide celebrate their most sacred festival, Ridvan, which takes from the end of April to the beginning of May each year. This event commemorates the 12 days that Baha’u’llah spent on the banks of the Tigris River in Baghdad in 1863, during which He declared His mission as God’s Messenger for a new age and revealed the spiritual principles that are the foundation of His teachings.

The name “Ridvan” means “paradise,” and during the 12 days, Baha’i communities come together to celebrate this joyous occasion.
