Obon is an Annual Japanese festival event commemorating one's ancestors (Oregon Obon and Taiko Drumming). Traditionally it was believed that each year during Obon, the ancestors' spirits return to this world to visit their relatives. For Obon, lanterns are hung in front of houses to guide the spirits, obon dances (bon odori) are performed, graves are visited and food offerings are made at house altars and temples. OBT holds an Obon festival every year on the first Saturday of August. There is entertainment, bon odori (open to anybody), children's area and food and gifts are available for purchase. 

Obonfest Festival Event is Here
Oregon Buddhist Temple will celebrate Obon Fest with plenty of great food, a Taiko performance, craft sales, and Bon Odori. This year OBT will be hanging chochins (paper lanterns), which have been personalized with the names of deceased loved ones and their date of passing. 

Background on Obon Fest
Each year we prepare for our OBONFEST, by practicing the dances that close the festival. It is an all-comers dance, so everyone is invited to join in the fun. It can be more enjoyable if you know the dances, and the practices themselves are great.
