2021 Obon Festival Cancelled

  • 2021-08-22
  • 3:00 PM - 8:30 PM
  • Como Park Zoo & Conservatory

We would like to inform you that the Obon Festival 2021 has been officially cancelled this year again due to COVID-19. The decision was made with everyone's safety in mind since we do not feel comfortable enough yet to get together with a minimum of 10,000 people.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Obon Festival 2022! 

Meanwhile, there will be a small program of a lantern release  on the pond at Como Park this year. The date and details will be announced later on this website.

The Obon Festival, the largest Japan-related festival in Minnesota, usually takes place in Como Park every August. Modeled after summer festivals held across Japan, it features stage performances, cultural demonstrations, activities, and, of course, Japanese food.
