This year, the Sakura Taiko Fest moves to the University of Maryland College Park! Don’t miss this fun, energetic, family-friendly event featuring Miyako Taiko, Nen Daiko, Kyo Daiko, Mark H Rooney & Kristen Koyama of Kizuna, and Tanya Downer of ShinDaiko.
Thanks to our sponsors, the UMDCP Japanese American Students Association and Society for Interdisciplinary Studies of Performaing Arts, this event is FREE and open to the public. Donations to support DC-Area taiko are encouraged.
Traveling via Metro? Take the Green Line to the College Park/UMD station and then take UMD shuttle #104.
Driving? You can park in either the Union Lane Garage or the Regents Drive Garage (please do remember to pay at one of the machines so you don’t get a ticket!).
The Nyumburu Cultural Center is next to the Stamp Student Union – you can find it on the UMD interactive campus map.
