Fiesta Matsuri combines the Children's Day celebrations of two communities—Kodomo no hi in Japan and Dîa de los niños in Mexico. Both holidays celebrate the growth, happiness, and success of children.
This fun-filled day not only fosters an appreciation for Japanese American tradition but also connects participants to the diversity derived from multiple generations and ethnicities. With workshops and activities designed for children of all ages, Fiesta Matsuri hopes to engage families with culture and community. Through collaboration, it also serves to create new ties and promote understanding among a diverse group of people.
