Annual Hazara Picnic in Maryland

By Timor Karimy | Founder & President

The Hazara-American Association (HAA) organizes two major events per year: the first one at the end of Spring and the second one at the end of Fall, under the banner of, The Great Picnic/Gathering of Hazaras in the United States. The Hazara diaspora and those who have arrived recently travel from distant states to attend these events in order to meet, network, share knowledge and experiences and make good memories with their fellow community members.

The first picnic this year, held on May 28, 2023, also coincided with the Hazara Culture Day to celebrate the rich Hazara culture in the presence of thousands of attendees, and to pass our traditions to the younger generation.

The Bamyan Foundation Team collaborated with the HAA team to plan and organize this amazing event of celebration and festivity. Nearly four thousand people attended the event that was held in Black Hill Park, Maryland.

The event included the Chaharda Paal, Hazaragi music and dance, award ceremony for the volleyball tournament and networking/meet & greet among the participants. For more, please watch the videos and find more details on our website via the link provided below.

With gratitude,

Timor + The Bamyan Foundation Team
