“Omatsuri” is the Japanese term for a “traditional festival.” Visitors to this festival on August 11 – 12, 2023, will be treated to authentic Japanese customs, presentations of traditional music, dance and song, and more! Look forward to games and activities for the kids and galleries of local Japanese arts and crafts, as well as several food kiosks featuring traditional Japanese cuisine. (On Friday night you’ll find a special performance by Japanese Comedian Yumi Nagashima and a Japanese-inspired drag show. It will also include a Mini Japanese Night Market, Sake and Beer Gardens.)
