2010 Japan Festival – October 2nd 2010

Planning for the festival goes year-round. As new content is added to the site for the upcoming festival, we also leave some existing information from the previous year for convenience of our visitors.

Please sign up for our mailing list so we can notify you of updates and reminders of the festival (just a couple emails will be sent and you can cancel anytime).

Honored guests, including government officials and dignitaries from sponsoring organizations, will officially open the 2010 festival in the Polsky Theatre in the Carlsen Center. The opening ceremonies will include music, remarks by distinguished guests and the ritual of kagamiwari – the breaking of the sake barrel and toast to open the festival.
