2022 Annual Tanabata Star Festival Event. Join us for the annual Japanese star festival! Tanabata 七夕 at the garden is a family-friendly event that we celebrate with magnificent colors, craft making, and a tradition of writing wishes. This year, we’re celebrating for 3 days!
Are you making a wish upon the stars on Tanabata this year? We are, here at the Seattle Japanese Garden! Enjoy the Tanabata story and other activities below, and write your wish on a tanzaku.
The story of Tanabata comes from the legend of Orihime and Hikoboshi, star crossed lovers separated by the Milky Way. Each year on the evening of July 7th, Orihime and Hikoboshi are allowed to reunite for one night only. In Japan, Tanabata is celebrated by decorating bamboo branches with origami ornaments and tanzaku, poems or wishes written on small strips of paper.
