Tampa Natsumatsuri is Tampa's only authentically Japanese Summer Festival. It's just like what you'd find in rural Japan, only here in Tampa. This festival is community-based and entirely non-profit.
It was started eight years ago when two friends who had both lived in Japan decided they should have a summer festival to remind themselves of what they loved in Japan. That first year, over 100 people turned out and Tampa Natsumatsuri was born.
Local organizations are invited to participate. There is no vendor fee. All Japan-related exhibits, performances, games, etc. are welcome. Many groups adopt an activity that they conduct year after year at the event. For details on how you can participate, please contact us at [masked] .
