Como Park Japanese Obon Festival

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 08/18/2019
Bonsai, martial arts, Ikebana, singing, dancing, drumming, delicious food and other aspects of Japanese culture will take center stage at the 20th annual Como Park Japanese Obon Festival, a family-friendly event, reminiscent of Japan’s annual Obon holiday.

Gates and exhibits open at 3pm 

The day will culminate at dusk with the main event—the lantern lighting. Stone lanterns as well as hundreds of floating paper lanterns throughout the Japanese Garden pond and the Frog Pond will create a vision of peacefulness and harmony. 

Admission is $5 per person. Admission for children ages 3-12 and Seniors 65 and over is $3, and those 2 and under are free. 

You can easily avoid the parking challenges by following the signs to the free Como Shuttle.
