Labor Day Weekend
September 3-5

Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Japanese Festival, a three-day cultural adventure right here at the Garden. Experience the thunderous pounding rhythms of the taiko drums, the all-new thrilling samurai sword performance and more! 

Since 1977, the Missouri Botanical Garden has produced the annual Japanese Festival in conjunction with the Japanese Activities Committee, a coalition of several Japanese-American organizations that provide art, dance, food and entertainment for thousands of visitors each year.
