Aki Matsuri Japanese Fall Festival | Japantown Peace Plaza | October 19
Come celebrate the Aki Matsuri, or fall festival in SF Japantown. In Japan, just like here in the United States, folks give thanks for nature’s bounty (in Japan, the rice harvest). Likewise, we celebrate the fall by featuring top Japanese cultural groups of San Francisco and greater Bay Area. Experience the roar of Japanese drumming, beauty of Japanese dance, precision of martial arts, and more! We will feature these groups on two stages. Bring the whole family for a day of culture and art!
