Bring out the kids and friends to enjoy our annual festival offering many fun games and prizes, craft activities, face painting, bounce houses, and cultural and live stage performances for the community to enjoy. Admission is free and open to the public, and children are encouraged to wear kimono, yukata or other Japanese clothing.

Attendees to this year’s festival can look forward to performances including cultural performances by Japanese taiko group Genryu Arts, the Center’s Ito Yosakoi dance group,  acapella singing from MEaN Nikkei Acapella group, kendo (traditional Japanese sword fencing) demonstration by SF Kendo Dojo and more! The festival stage schedule will also include the 2022 Cherry Blossom Queen Court announcing the winner of the festival’s Sakura Art Contest as well as the live drawing of the Center’s annual Youth Raffle.
