Como Park Obon Festival - Como Park Zoo and Conservatory

Music, martial arts, singing, dancing, drumming, delicious food, vendors, games, and other aspects of Japanese culture will be featured at the annual Como Park Japanese Obon Festival on the grounds of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory from 3:00pm – 9:00pm on Sunday, August 18. At the end of the Obon festival, lanterns are released into the water so that the spirits can return to the other world. We will be selling only advanced tickets again in 2024. More details to come!
