2016 Cultural Festival, Sat 7/23 and Sun 7/24

(formerly known as carnival)

Every year, on the 4th Saturday and Sunday of July, Southeast Japanese School and Community Center holds its summer matsuri (cultural festival).

Most of the groups at the Center participate in the matsuri, for example by putting on a demonstration or exhibition, operating a game booth, or selling food. Norwalk Kendo Dojo does all three!

  • teriyaki chicken, teriyaki beef, and yakisoba booth
  • goldfish toss booth (ping pong balls in fish bowl)
  • kendo demonstration Saturday 4pm
    note: this year we will be doing the demo in the judo room
We need everyone's help at this time: kenshi, parents, siblings, extended family, and friends.
  • Please start signing up for set up duty and booth duty with the officers.
