Details

The Japanese American Association of Lane County will host their annual Obon and Taiko Festival to share the music and folk dancing traditional to Japanese culture and now observed by Japanese communities around the world. The main feature of the Obon Festival is the Bon Odori, a community folk dance. Dance movements are simple so dancers of all ages can participate regardless of skill. Taiko drummers will perform traditional music as dancers, some in tradtional dress, form a dance circle. This event is informal and families are welcome to bring picnics and sit on the grass while observing and participating in community dancing.
