Post Street from Laguna to Fillmore Streets
The 35th Annual Nihonmachi Street Fair is a celebration of the diverse Asian and Pacific American communities here in the Bay Area. A place where one can taste and learn about the various cultures. What makes NSF unique and what common thread there is between us. It is a place where our children can go and identify with ... a celebration they can call their own.
Organized by community volunteers, the Nihonmachi Street Fair is one of the premiere non-profit festivals for the Asian American community of the Bay Area during the summer. For the past 34 years, the Fair's goals have been to create an atmosphere in Japantown where Asian American and Pacific Island people can celebrate the spirit of community and cooperation. It is also a place where we encourage everyone from the diverse Bay Area to come, learn and see what our communities are all about.
The two-day festival is the largest gathering of the summer for Asian American social service organizations. Groups from around the Bay Area sponsor food booths and arts and crafts booths to raise funds for programs and services. Artisans will gather in Japantown as well for one of the biggest displays of Asian American creativity for the season.
Additional events include two days of free musical entertainment which showcases hip-hop, R&B, and Top 40 music and cultural performing artists.
