Fiesta Matsuri combines the Children's Day celebration of two communities - the Japanese Kodomo no Hi and Dia de los Ninos from Mexico. Both holidays celebrate the growth, happiness, and success of children.

This fun-filled day not only fosters an appreciation for Japanese American tradition but also connects participants to the diversity derived from multiple generations and ethnicities. With workshops and activities designed for children of all ages, Fiesta Matsuri hopes to engage families with culture and community. Through collaboration, it also serves to create new ties and promote understanding among a diverse group of people.
