Largest Iranian food and culture festival outside Iran

Mehregan is a celebration of nature, a festival of seasons, and the birthday of light. It commemorates the triumph of good over evil, warmth over coldness, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance. The colorful festival of Mehregan marks the beginning of autumn. Mehregan 2010 is dedicated to the poet Ferdowsi (Fer-doe-see), in celebration of the millennium anniversary of his masterpiece Shahnameh, The Epics of Kings.

Since 1994, volunteers from several organizations in Southern California have gathered annually to create an extraordinary outdoor family event that includes an array of activities such as arts crafts, music, poetry, live performances, dance, children’s activities, and ethnic food. The number of participants has grown steadily over the years to more than 20,000 attendees.

Mehregan (Mehr-e-gan) is a Persian Festival of Autumn to honor the mythical Goddess Mehr (Mitra) for her triumph over ignorance in the name of love, knowledge, and commitment. Mehregan is also a tribute to nature, the change in seasons, and a time of thanksgiving. It has been celebrated for the past 6,000 years in the land of Persia.
