The Sounds of Summer…Yes! Taiko Drums!

Cherry Blossom Festival Time!

It’s finally Summer. And, it’s finally time for the 40th Annual Sakura Matsuri Cherry Blossom Festival at Sakura Square! Free admission, of course, Saturday and Sunday, June 25-26 on Lawrence Street between 19th and 20th.

As always, the festival features continuous live entertainment…including lots of Taiko Drums. Of course, there are plenty of arts and crafts, bonsai, ikebana and a feast of Japanese foods.

The popular Bon Odori community folk dance starts at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Find more information and the full schedule here. And, check out “Asian Fusion”, the Denver music group that blends modern jazz with the Taiko.

Since 1892

Brought to you by lots of sponsors, the Tri-State Buddhist Temple and a very good Japanese beer!
