2017 Nisei Week Festival Tips in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles

2017 Nisei Week Festival Map & Tips, Little Tokyo
Nisei Week Starts in August 2017 for 2 Weeks
2017 Nisei Week Daily Event Schedule
Nisei Week is a series of events that are held in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles during the month of August.

We have basic tips for avoiding long lines and planning an incredible experience during Nisei Week. There are so many events crammed in two weeks, so planning your trip is critical and necessary for you and your family. Most of us won't go more than a few times during these two weeks. (As of 2015, there seems like more events have been added) With Los Angeles traffic on the 10, 405 & 110 freeways and downtown parking, it will be crowded.

One strategy is to plan 2-3 trips:
- Week 1: Saturday: JACCC Plaza, JANM Building, JANM Stage, Tanabata Festival, Go For Broke Monument
- Week 1: Sunday: Nisei Week Parade, JACCC Plaza & Building, Tanabata Festival, Go For Broke Monument

- Week 2: Sunday: Ondo dance & Closing Ceremonies, JACCC Plaza & Building, Tanabata Festival, Go For Broke Monument

There are some Nisei Week events the general public may not be invited or interested in like luncheons, award & coronation dinners.

Look below for the most popular events to check out. If there are no events listed, check back 2-3 months before August.
