Join us for the third annual Kibō Nobori Children’s Day Festival as we proudly celebrate the Japanese holiday Kodomo No Hi in Little Tokyo. "Kodomo No Hi" means "Children's Day" in Japan and is a day to celebrate and wish for health and good fortune for all children. In partnership with Faith-Ann Kiwa Young, co-mrkt, and Terasaki Budokan, it will be a fun-filled day with activities for the whole family!

Featured Installation Artist & Creator
Half-Japanese artist & creative director Faith-Ann Kiwa Young is showcasing multi-media fabric installations, inspired by Koi flags that are hung in Japan during Kodomo No Hi, Children’s Day festivities, in Japan. Kibō means "hope" and "Nobori" means "flags/banner". Printing layered photos onto fabric and hanging them so they flutter in the air, she will create a surrealistic, colorful playground, honoring children’s youthful spirit, hope, and imagination. All ages will be able to walk, run, and play under it. Visitors will be able to share messages of hope alongside the installation, as well as #KiboNobori on social media. With the vision of the day to spread hope and showcase the incredible and diverse talent within the community, she teamed up with co-mrkt and Terasaki Budokan to bring “Kibō Nobori” to life.
