2022 Annual Gardena Buddhist Church Obon Festival Event is coming in August.  Celebrating 96 years of sharing the Nenbutsu.
Obon is a time to express our gratitude and joy for the causes and conditions and people (past and present) that have made our lives possible. This is especially true for our temple since we are celebrating our 95th Anniversary. For many years we have been fortunate to have the support of the community at our Obon Carnival and Dance, so this year, we would like to give back to the community by hosting a Food Drive in support of the City of Gardena Emergency Service Food Pantry.

Updates Coming.

Obon or 'Festival of the Dead' is celebrated in Japanese-American communities all over the country in the middle of July or August.

Obon features Bon Odori folk dancing, live music and taiko, games, and lots of Japanese food.
