Fire Jumpers

For those of you ready to jump over the fire (whether you’re an old pro or trying it for the first time), we are required by the beautiful and brave NYC Fire Department to sign the waiver form. We will send it to you in the email on the day of the event.

Tips for Jumping

Take your time, or jump right in! You can always change your mind and step away at any time, even after you’ve already jumped.

Bring a friend, you can jump holding hands too. 

It’s good to watch others jumping so you can see how it’s done.

Practice at home!

Open your heart and set an intention. Allow courage, vulnerability, and love to guide you.


Weather can get pretty cold with the wind so bring layered clothing to keep yourself warm.

Avoid long-flowing fabrics, fringe, and fluffy gear. (Save that for dancing later on). The best clothes for fire jumping are body-fitting pants and tops of thick cotton or denim. Also, make sure you can LEAP in whatever you have on!

Food and Drink

We will have vendors selling Persian goodies. Bring your own water container to stay hydrated.


More Gardens’ Chaharshanbe Suri is on Thursday, March 16th, 2023.

Gates Open: 5:30 pm

Event Ends: 9:00 pm


Make sure you stay behind the roped area and aren’t blocking anyone jumping.

The safety volunteers can guide you to the best vantage points for taking pics.

Please be respectful, careful, and intentional when photographing others jumping.
