As autumn begins, the fields are cleared of crops; harvest season in Iran is accompanied by some festivals and celebrations.

Iran (IMNA) - Autumnal harvesting is one of the main annual event in all farmers' calendars. As there are many beliefs, customs and rituals linked to the harvest time, Iranians perform their own unique old harvest customs, with various regional variations. Many harvest celebrations are connected with picking corn or other cereal crops; however, farmers in Hamedam's Heydareh Qazi Khan Village hold a festival when the time of picking plums arrives during early October.

This is an old tradition that attracts many visitors every year. The harvest festival that has become largely a general holiday in Hamedan province typically features public gathering along with musical performances.
