Natsu Matsuri and Obon Festival – Featuring Tanabata celebrations!

The JCCC would like to invite everyone to come out on our Annual Natsu Matsuri (3:30 – 7 pm) and Obon (7 – 9pm) Festival. 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.

Once again we will also be including Tanabata at this event.  Visitors to the festival will be able to participate in activities such as a special Wishing Tree, and there will be more Tanabata activities for children, too.
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 take place indoors.

We look forward to the 17th 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!
