Dear Vendors,

The Iranian American Community Alliance (IACA) is pleased to announce 9th Iranian Festival will be held on Saturday August 8, 2015. We are now accepting applications for table space and vendor booth.

The Iranian Festival is a great way for members of the Iranian community to showcase and demonstrate their best and latest products, services, art, and other activities to the public. This one day event features live music, cultural dances, authentic food, and a talent show, attracting thousands of Iranians and non-Iranians each year. By participating in this festival you will promote and market your business to a vast crowd who are interested to learn about Iranian culture.

A number of tables will be set up for various purposes, some of which will be reserved for businesses who seek to advertise their services and others are assigned for non-profit causes and art exhibitions. As festival organizing committee, Delaram Givi, I am in charge of vendor booth and I am excited to invite you to join the biggest Iranian gathering of the year!

Space is limited, so acceptance is on a first come-first serve basis. If you are interested in being  part of this great event as a vendor, please fill out the online application by click on the following link, and submit it no later than Saturday, July25th:
