    Philadelphia Obon Festival

    Shofuso Japanese House and Garden

    Horticultural Drive and Lansdowne Drive, Philadelphia, PA 19131-3712
    • Sunday August 27th 2017, 11:00am to 5:00pm
    Come to Shofuso Japanese House and Garden on Sunday, August 27 for the fifth annual Philadelphia Obon Festival. The day will include live music, food, Japanese arts and crafts, a flea market, and a traditional bon dance. All Obon Festival events are free.

    Obon is a time in Japan where everyone returns home – even the spirits of ancestors. It’s both a traditional celebration of one’s ancestors and a contemporary summer festival with music, food, and dance. Bon odori are dances that vary from place to place — if you’d like to share your hometown dance at our festival, please let us know.
