Mehregan (Persian Festival of Autumn) 2010 Celebration: Irvine California, September 25-26
Mehregan 2010 is dedicated to the poet Ferdowsi, in celebration of the millennium anniversary of his masterpiece Shahnameh, The Epics of Kings. Ferdowsi revived the Persian language in this timeless patriotic tale of heroism that promotes human rights, freedom and liberty with a message of peace and harmony for all. The Organizing Committee of Mehregan in Orange County invites the entire community to participate and rejoice the spirit of Shahnameh at Mehregan 2010.
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 is a non-profit, non-political, and non-religious event organized by the Mehregan Organizing Committee of NIPOC (Network of Iranian-American Professionals of Orange County) and volunteers from other organizations within the community.
