Obon is a Japanese celebration of one’s ancestors. Each August, people return to their hometowns to remember the dead and reunite with loved ones. Obon is celebrated with festivities, especially dances called bon odori. These bon odori vary from place to place giving each Obon celebration a distinctive flavor.

On Saturday, August 18, Shofuso Japanese House and Garden will host Philadelphia’s 6th Annual Obon celebration. The festivities will include the eponymous dances, taiko drumming by Kyo Daiko, tea ceremony demonstrations by Urasenke Philadelphia, traditional games, arts & crafts, as well as vendors selling traditional goods. Join us for a day of celebration outside the gates of Shofuso Japanese House and Garden. This event is free and open to the public.

In the event of inclement weather, the Obon festival will be held on Sunday, August 19.
