Natsu Matsuri and Bon Odori 2023
The JCCC would like to invite everyone to come out on Saturday, July 8th, 2023 for the return of the 19th Annual Natsu Matsuri/Obon Festival from 5 – 9pm with the Bon Odori starting at 7pm. Please join us for a lively festival atmosphere with children’s games, vendors, great food (including our famous Somen Bar and our Beer Garden), and spectacular performances.
As we return to a full festival, we will also be including Tanabata at this event. Visitors to the festival will be able to participate in activities like a special Wishing Tree and many more Tanabata activities for children. Many community organizations come together to make this a unique event.
Weather permitting, the event will take place outside in the parking lot, or else it will be moved indoors to Kobayashi Hall. We look forward to the 19th year of this exciting JCCC and Community tradition. We hope to see lots of new and familiar faces. Mark your calendars now! Everyone is welcome, and admission is free!
