The 15th Annual

NC Japan Summer Festival

has been CANCELLED


Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the high risk of further spreading this virus via large crowds in enclosed spaces, and the strong recommendations of health and public safety officials, we must regrettably CANCEL this year's festival.  Our primary concern is the health and safety of our guests, volunteers and participants.  The festival will occur again in the summer of 2021 when things have improved.  Good luck and best wishes to you all in the coming months.
