Sizdeh Bedar 2014 Celebration in Thousand Oaks

For the last 18 years, the formal event was organized by Conejo Recreation & Park District (CRPD) and the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office at the Conejo Creek North location in Thousand Oaks, California. With the support of CRPD, the Sheriff’s office, The City of Moorpark, and Arroyo Vista Recreation Center, the event, which is now organized by the California Multicultural Society, has been moved to a new location that can accommodate the larger crowds that have been building over the years.

In 2017, the event reached over 10,000 people and over 2,500 vehicles parked in the designated parking areas. Capacity for Conejo Creek North Park is estimated at under 8,000 people with a maximum capacity of 2,500 parked vehicles onsite. With the event now at Arroyo Vista Community Park, the event organizer has made a long term commitment with the city for this venue.
