This is the 38th year for the Arizona Matsuri. The theme for the 2022 Arizona Matsuri is "Kintsugi." This is an artform of beautifully repairing broken dishes, a resemblance we can all support as we continue towards the goal of coming back together in the most beautiful way imaginable.

- Japanese traditional and modern music, dance, martial arts and drum (taiko) performances;
- Authentic Japanese food and merchandise information with coupons from our vendors;
- Plenty of raffle items, including Japan Airlines donation of 50,000 flight miles towards a trip to Japan!;
- The Haiku Expo -- a contest and exhibit;
- Educational materials directly provided by the Consul General of Japan (Los Angeles);
- A "blast from the past" with videos of previous Arizona Matsuri participants!

Details for this year's food and merchandise vendors, exhibitors, stage performers and haiku contest can be found at https://www.azmatsuri.org/.The Arizona Matsuri is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
