Japan Fest returns to Fairfield on August 18

Come join the Fairfield-Nirasaki Sister City Program at its 6th annual Japan Fest fundraising event on Saturday, August 18! The event will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fairfield Community Center at 1000 Kentucky Street.

Exciting performances and activities for all ages are planned. Children and families can learn origami, Japanese calligraphy, and many other traditional Japanese crafts at our activity and game tables. Experts on ikebana, the art of flower arrangement, will be in attendance as well. There will also be a Japanese-inspired box lunch available for purchase and plenty of Japanese goods for sale.

All proceeds from this event will go to the Fairfield-Nirasaki Sister Ciy Program's annual student exchange activities, continuing a 47-year tradition of fostering important cultural exchange and understanding. The program receives no outside assistance and is dependent on donations.

Tickets will also be available for purchase at the door on the day of the event. However, the lunches go fast, so if you want to ensure you get one, it's recommended you buy tickets online in advance.  

We hope to see you there!
