In years past, as part of its annual celebration of Ridvan, the “Most Great Festival,“ the Baha’i House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois, hosted special devotional gatherings and musical programs for these Holy Days. The 12-day Festival of Ridvan is among the most significant observances in the Baha’i calendar.

This year, due to social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the House of Worship is offering a new way of celebrating with what may be an even wider audience.
