The Buddhist Church of Sacramento’s Japanese Culture & Food Bazaar is back for its 72nd year this weekend. It’s a great way to learn more about Japanese culture right in your backyard!

The event is going to be held on Aug. 11 – 12 this year from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on both days, reports Rafu. There’s going to be lots of food, music, and activities!

Some highlights include performances by Japanese folk musicians, dancers and singers, with a special show by The East Wind Band on Saturday evening. Ongoing exhibits will also feature Japanese handmade doll demonstrations, calligraphy, and flower arrangement. It’s a great event for the whole family with plenty of children’s games set up, as well!
