The Venice Japanese Community Center will present its annual Natsu Matsuri, or summer festival, on Saturday and Sunday. The family-friendly event celebrates the Marina del Rey known locally as Venice area’s deep-rooted, decades-old Japanese American community with Japanese cuisine and Japanese cultural exhibitions, as well as American-style foods and treats like chili dogs, tacos and sno-cones.

Every summer the VJCC’s parking lot is transformed into a carnival of easygoing, child-friendly games for youngsters, plus a baseball-throw dunking booth for older kids. The many food booths will also sell perennial favorites like teriyaki chicken, spam musubi and udon (Japanese noodles), as well as chirashi zushi, inari zushi and maki zushi.

Matsui Festival Schedule 
The center’s basketball court, meantime, becomes filled with communal tables and chairs to dine, take a rest, visit with friends and watch the events that unfold throughout the day on the VJCC’s main stage, including demonstrations by the center’s various martial arts clubs (aikidō, iaidō, judō, karaté and kendō) and short programs by Venice Gakuen, hula dancing and line dancing, koto (Japanese zither), and shodō  Japanese calligraphy). Also performing both days will be the VJCC-based Koshin Taiko, and as twilight arrives and the day cools, Japanese American ondo dancing will begin.

Featured both days in the VJCC’s main hall and classrooms will be the “Pioneer General Store”. Walk over to the Cultural Expo and view photography and cultural exhibits of bonsai, watercolor, shodō, sumi-é, and ikebana.
