Sun Valley Obon Festival is celebrating 65 years, and the two day festival will be taking place at The Valley Japanese Community Center. Come and eat some all-time favorite foods such as udon, teriyaki beef, sushi, Chinese chicken salad, and fresh roasted corn on the cob; as well as some delicious homemade baked goods which will all be avaliable for purchase. 

Sun Valley Obon Festival schedule: demonstrations of Judo, Karate, Kendo, Tea Ceremony, Taiko, and Minyo Odori will be held. 

Other activities include: festival-type games, exhibits of calligraphy/Sumi-E, and school work completed by Japanese School Students will be featured on both days.

After the demonstrations, there will be Bon Odori dancing. Bon dances are dances of joy so age, looks or experience should not inhibit anyone from entering the circle of dancers! Bon Odori will begin at 7:00pm
