About Aki Matsuri Festival
Aki Matsuri festival was founded in 2010 by Robert Higashinaka who wanted to boost awareness about the growing Japanese population in Las Vegas. “Aki Matsuri” are the Japanese words for “fall festival”, and has been celebrated in the Las Vegas valley each October. The first Aki Matsuri took place at West Flamingo Park on Flamingo and Jones, then it moved to Chinatown for two years, then to a major casino property for three years, until it’s ultimate destination at the Henderson Events Plaza. The event attracts more than 10,000 people annually and features traditional culture, music and food. The visiting groups from Japan, as well as the local talent, are not paid for their performances, nor are the visiting groups compensated for their travel expenses. JFAN appreciates the enthusiasm of everyone who volunteers to make this event a success year after year.

About the Japanese Festival Association of Nevada (JFAN)
JFAN is grass roots founded, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to bringing Japanese culture to Nevada, and providing opportunities for all members of the community to experience and learn about Japan. The popularity of the event attracted the attention of MGM Resorts Japan, the Japan Foundation, Los Angeles, and the Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco. The board of JFAN were extremely excited about the major casino sponsorship and the support by the Japanese organizations outside the state of Nevada. Kathleen Blakely, Honorary Consul General of Japan in Nevada said, “We could not be more pleased that the Japan Foundation, Los Angeles will be a sponsor for this year’s event.” JFAN’s President, Jeff Winchester said, “The sponsorship by MGM Resorts Japan, Japan Foundation Los Angeles, and the Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco cements Aki Matsuri’s standing as the premier Japanese festival in Southern Nevada. We hope others will follow the lead of these organizations and help support this incredible event, keeping it free and open to the public.”
