Tanabata "七夕まつり" ~ Japanese Star Festival at Nikkei Garden Farmers Market

July 10, 2022 | 10:00am - 2:00pm

This year, celebrate Tanabata at the Nikkei Garden Farmer's Market! We invite you to visit the Kids Booth to make your wish upon the stars.

Tanabata is also known as the Star Festival "七夕まつり". It celebrates the romantic story of two stars who are only allowed to meet each other once a year so long as the skies are clear. It is usually celebrated on the seventh day of the seventh month. People celebrate by writing their wishes on small pieces of paper (called tanzaku) and hang them on bamboo branches, in hopes they will come true.

There's lots to check out at the Nikkei Garden Farmers Market!
