JAPANFEST Atlanta (Japanfest Website Link)
Since 1986, JapanFest Weekend has been the annual celebration of Japan’s bond of friendship with the people of the United States. This year, JapanFest will be held on Saturday, September 21 and Sunday, September 22, 2019 again at the Infinite Energy Center (formally Gwinnett Center), in Duluth, Georgia. The theme of this year’s JapanFest is “Olympics 2020”, and the festival’s organizing committee is making plans to celebrate and highlight popular aspects of traditional and modern Japanese culture, from Japanese music, fashion, traditional performing arts, technology and anime/manga. JapanFest will also celebrate the friendship between the people of Japan and the United States, and more specifically, the 33nd Anniversary of the festival this year.
