This is it! THE annual festival held in the City of Phoenix at Heritage Square Park. This festival is a celebration of Japanese heritage, culture, art and food. Check http://azmatsuri.org/...
"The chosen theme for the 2010 Matsuri is that of a traditional figure of a cat called Maneki Neko, which means "Lucky Cat" or "Beckoning Cat". The cat draws attention by raising one paw and holding a valuable coin in the other. Often times one will see a porcelain or metal Maneki Neko standing at the door, or just inside, a Japanese business or restaurant. The Naneki Neko appears to wave its paw to greet customers."
They have posted the schedule, it may change.
FYI: This is a double event with the 20s and 30s group.
