Southern Alameda County Buddhist Church Obon Festival Event. The Southern Alameda County Buddhist Church invites all community members to their annual Festival of Obon Saturday, August 13, 2022! Featured entertainment will include Buddhist dancing with music by The San Jose Chidori Band. There will be authentic Japanese Bento Box dinners for sale.
Obon, also referred to as Kangi-e, is a “Joyous gathering with dharma dance.” Colorful yukata-clad dancers perform dances of joy, marking a memorial day honoring departed loved ones and offering thanks. This annual celebration expresses joy and gratitude to those who made our own lives possible.
In the weeks prior to the festival, there will be FREE Obon practice sessions for those looking to learn the dances ahead of time, or to brush up on their moves. These will start at 7:30 pm on 8/1, 8/3, 8/4, 8/8, 8/9, 8/11, and will be held in the Sangha Hall at SACBC. Dance Practices are OPTIONAL - you need not practice to participate in the event.
On Sunday, August 14, SACBC will hold its annual Buddhist Obon Spiritual Service for our departed loved ones. This will be given by our resident minister, Rev. Dr. Takashi Miyaji. Those who recently lost their loved ones within the past year are especially welcomed. We will be conducting a special service for them called Hatsubon (First Obon Service). During this festival and remembrance, our caring and gratitude extends to all people and all living beings.
Everyone is invited to dance!
