Annual Tanabata Festival San Diego is coming back this year on July 7th.
Originating from Chinese folklore, Tanabata is a holiday that celebrates the meeting of Orihime and Hikoboshi! Separated by the Milky Way, the stars Orihime and Hikoboshi are able to meet once per year on the seventh day of the seventh month. JFG partners with the Minatomo Japanese Community to celebrate Tanabata in San Diego! Guests of all ages are invited to enjoy the summer sun and partake in the Tanabata celebration. This year’s festival will be full of kid-friendly fun, such as games, performances, crafts and food.

10:00 am - 5:00 pm
A common practice during Tanabata is to decorate the nanatsu kazari, or seven decorations. The nanatsu kazari include the Fukinagashi, Tanzaku, Kamigoromo, Orizuru, Kinchaku, Toami, and Kuzukago. The Fukinagashi is the most eye-catching decoration which represents the weaving yarn in the Tanabata legend of Orihime and is a charm for the improvement in the arts. Admiring the decorations and taking in the meaning behind them is one way of enjoying the Tanabata festival.
