Fiesta Matsuri.jpg

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.

In partnership with Visual Communications, join us at the top of the day for the opening weekend of the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival for a selection of films called "Kids Shorts (Not the Kind You Wear)" on Sunday, May 5th at 11 AM in the Aratani Theatre.
