The Annual Obon festival in New York is back, featuring Japanese folk dances, music, taiko drumming and crafts, including origami. The location is Bryant Park in the heart of Manhattan. Our urban festival attracts NYC residents and tourists who join in the dancing. We also welcome the dancers, taiko drummers and friends who join us every year from Seabrook, New Jersey.

Come honor the memory of your ancestors with joyful dancing!
