2014 marks the 68th year of the Obon Festival on the Monterey Peninsula. The Obon festival is a Buddhist tradition to celebrate, remember and express gratitude to all family members who have died.- The Obon festival has been celebrated in Japan since 657 AD.- The first Obon in the United States was held in Hawaii in 1910; festivals on the mainland began about 20 years later.-

The first Monterey Obon Festival was held on August 25, 1947 at the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) Hall in Monterey, home to the Temple then. In 1963, the event was moved to the Monterey County Fairgrounds where it was held for 30 years.- The Obon Festival returned to the Temple, now in Seaside, in 1993.- 3,000 to 5,000 people from across the Monterey Peninsula and beyond attend each year.
