Thanks to you the 2016 New York Persian Parade was a huge success!

Every year, a sea of green, white, and red blankets Madison Ave as over 200,000 people line the streets of NYC in celebration. The annual Persian Parade brings together people of diverse backgrounds to honor one of the world’s richest histories, cultures, and traditions.

Thank you to everyone for joining us on a beautiful Spring Sunday for the 2016 Persian Parade on Madison Avenue and festival in Madison Square Park. The Persian Parade Foundation is grateful for the countless hours of support and hard work that went into making the 13th Annual Parade the biggest and best yet!

The Persian Parade Foundation's Board of Directors would like to express their sincere gratitude to the dedicated members of the NYPD, the NYC Parks & Sanitation Department for facilitating a flawless journey down Madison Avenue. Finally, thanks to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio for their words of support and encouragement in issuing a proclamation honoring the Parade in 2016.
