EVENT CANCELED 🙁
As you are probably aware, the coronavirus concerns in the DC area have escalated and the DC Department of Health has issued a notice advising against large gatherings through the end of March. As a result, the National Cherry Blossom Festival and National Park Service have canceled all events at the Tidal Basin Stage where our event was going to take place.
So, unfortunately we have no choice but to cancel our March 28 Sakura Taiko Takeover event. We’re really bummed about this, to say the least. We had hoped to move forward one way or another, but unfortunately the city’s advisory against mass gatherings makes it impossible for us to find another venue. We may try to reschedule to a new date and don’t have a plan for that yet, but will be sure to keep everyone in the loop when and if that works out.
Thanks so much to all of the groups who had made plans to perform with us and all of the folx who have worked long and hard over the years to make this an awesome event that we look forward to every spring.
Keep calm, stay safe and healthy, and we’ll see you all for our next Taiko Takeover in 2021!
