Mehregan - Sunday, October 22, 2023
Honoring Her Imperial Majesty, Farah Palavi
The Shahbanou during her 2017 visit to the garden.
Our annual Mehregan gala will be held on Sunday, October 22, and honor Her Imperial Majesty Farah Pahlavi. The gala will take place in the magnificent Persian garden at Untermyer Gardens and feature sumptuous Persian food, music, poetry, and dancing, with cocktails at 4:30 p.m. and dinner at 6:00 p.m.
The Shahbanou will be recognized for her extraordinary efforts to preserve Persian art and culture and share it with an international audience. The evening will culminate in a fire ceremony as the Shabanou dedicates the Persian Pool, which has been restored with the generous support of the Iranian-American community.
The Benefit Committee will be listed on the invitation, and members are asked to purchase or put together a table of ten (or contribute if you cannot attend) at $10,000, $15,000 (premium seating), or $20,000 (prime seating, very limited). Committee members and their guests may also enjoy a half-hour, docent-led garden tour at 3:45 p.m. and 4:15 p.m. Individual tickets are priced at $1,200.
Your support of Mehregan will help the Untermyer Gardens Conservancy sustain the finest Persian garden in the Western Hemisphere.
