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.

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.
