Wow! Incredible to think that we’ve been managing Japan Day @ Central Park for 11 of its 13 years! This year’s artwork is by the Grand Prize Winner, Lyubava Kroll!
This year’s festival will take place on Sunday, May 12th in Central Park’s Bandshell. As always, the day starts at 8am with a 5k run. At 9:30am, the activity tents open. Activities include some tech tents, traditional and contemporary activities, but most importantly – HELLO KITTY!
The stage show will start at 10:30am and promises to wow and entertain the audiences until 4pm! At 11:30am, the infamous foot tents open and will serve a variety of complimentary Japanese cuisine!
The mission of Japan Day is to show the local Japanese community’s appreciation toward their home city, New York; to build bridges of cultural understanding between the people of Japan and the U.S.; to facilitate stronger grassroots connections within the Japanese local community.
