Obon Festival- Let's Dance in the Streets!

  • Iowa City Public Library 123 South Linn Street Iowa City, IA, 52240 United States (map)

Are you interested in Taiko drumming or Japanese folk dancing?

Obon is a traditional summer festival in which we honor our ancestors who have passed on, remember and appreciate all they have done for us, and celebrate their ongoing presence in the lives we enjoy today. The main part of this event is dance in the street in a giant oval to traditional music.
