Now in its tenth year!
We can’t quite believe it … but our signature annual event, the Sakura Taiko Fest, is celebrating its TENTH ANNIVERSARY this year!
This event has grown from a small concert first held in a dance studio to a full day of free, family-friendly taiko performances in downtown DC. Each year, we welcome a number of North American taiko groups and feature a variety of different taiko styles as a celebration of Japanese-American cultural and artistic traditions.
Save the date!
Join us Saturday, March 30, 2024 (rain date: Sunday, March 31) to enjoy a full day of awesome drumming at the amazing Sylvan Theater, located on the grounds of the Washington Monument.
We’ve got a great lineup of performing groups this year and we can’t wait for you to join us!
