For centuries, in the month of February, local people of Kazerun celebrate the Festival of Narcissus. Kazerun is situated in Fars province (with Shiraz as its capital) and has 140 acres of land dedicated to the cultivation of Narcissus flower, being considered as the main locality for such production in Iran.

The festival covers the operation of cutting the flowers and preparing them to be exported to the other parts of Iran and its neighboring  countries.
