Tanabata is a traditional Japanese star festival held in midsummer. Join us at Shofuso Japanese House and Garden to tie wishes (tanzaku) to the bamboo tree, watch our giant tanabata star ornaments swish in the breeze, and make paper cranes for good luck. This full day of activities includes Japanese storytelling, musical instrument demonstrations, origami, and calligraphy! All events free with admission to Shofuso ($10 adults, $5 students, seniors, and children, $2 ACCESS Card holders, and FREE to military, members, and children 3 and under.)
