Philadelphia Obon Festival

Date:

Shofuso Japanese House and Garden Horticultural Dr and Lansdowne Dr

Come to Shofuso Japanese House and Garden on Sunday, August 27 for the fifth annual Philadelphia Obon Festival. The day will include live music, food, Japanese arts and crafts, a flea market, and a traditional bon dance. All Obon Festival events are free and open to the public. Obon is a time in Japan where everyone returns home – even the spirits of ancestors. It’s both a traditional celebration of one’s ancestors and a contemporary summer festival with music, food, and dance. Bon odori are dances that vary from place to place — if you’d like to share your hometown dance at our festival, please let us know.
