Celebrate 10th anniversary of the Los Angeles Tanabata Festival. This year’s theme is the “Spirit of Togetherness”. Crowds gather over the two-day festival to enjoy Japanese food, listen to live music, shop at the arts and crafts booths and view the hundreds of beautiful handmade kazari decorations made by the community.

Each summer, 10 award-winning gorgeous kazari are displayed at the Sendai Tanabata Festival in Japan. Then the giant kazaris are sent here to Little Tokyo for the Los Angeles Tanabata Festival.

Opening Ceremony kicks off the event on Fri. August 10th at 5 p.m. Then the festival is open from Sat. 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. and from 11a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

So invite your family and friends and join in the spirit of togetherness to celebrate the 10th Los Angeles Tanabata Festival!

Admission is free on all three days!
