In Azerbaijan, Novruz is officially celebrated between 20th and 24th of March. When public holidays and weekends overlap here (which usually is the case with Novruz, because it lasts for 5 days), the holiday gets extra days. So this year it's celebrated till 26th. The peak orgasmic moment of Novruz is the night between 20th and 21st. Other than that, 4 Tuesdays before 20th are also celebrated (unofficially). Yep, we really love Novruz.
The calendar of events during Novruz at azerbaijan.travel (FB events here) suggests that it's also worth to go to other cities during Novruz:
Join the Novruz celebration from March 5-28 in Ganja for a day packed
with fun for the whole family. #TakeAnotherLook at the exciting
competitions, gifts, playgrounds, crafts, and daily live performances.
Don't forget to take a few photos with 4.5-foot semeni. Location:
Heydar Aliyev Square in Ganja
#TakeAnotherLook and feel the festive atmosphere at the Spring
Festival in Sheki from March 19-25. Full of ceremonies and traditions,
enjoy folk dances, music performances, rope-dancers, bonfires and
more. Location: Sheki Castle (fortress) and Khans’ Palace courtyard
I would personally skip the Ganja celebrations, because they take place in the square which is the monument to the previous authoritarian head of the country, but you probably don't need to worry about that :)
The thing is that Novruz is celebrated everywhere in Azerbaijan. In any city you go, you will see huge "səməni"s (green wheat sprouts), decorations, festivals, folk dances, markets, etc.
As the last Tuesday is coming, don't forget to jump over a bonfire and wish that all your burdens stay in it on that day. You'll find a bonfire in every block of every city in the country on 19th.
Also don't forget to throw a hat on your neighbors door during Novruz. If they are nice they will fill it with sweets, nuts and other yummy stuff.
