St. Pete International Folk Fair - "Japan Village"

SPIFFS 39th Annual International Folk Fair (+Volunteers Needed)

October 31, November 1, and November 2, 2013

Student Days: Thursday and Friday, 9AM - 3PM

General Public: Saturday, November 2, 10AM - 9PM

General Admission: $10  Students: $6

Travel the World in One Day!

Ethnic foods, cultural exhibits, continuous entertainment, displays and student activities..

The Japan-America Society of Tampa Bay (JASTB) is sponsoring the Japan Village booth and needs volunteers for all 3 days, but especially Thursday and Friday.  They plan to have calligraphy, so are asking for a few Japanese people to write students' names in katakana.  

Other than that, volunteers of any national origin (^_~) are needed to help with sales, stamping students' "passports," serving food, etc.  They're expecting thousands of students on Thursday and Friday!  Even for a few hours, if people can help, it will be great. 

Thank you!  ありがとうございます!

If you have something Japanese you'd like to sell at the festival, contact me ([masked]) or Ron Shigemura to coordinate.  Everything will need to be priced and an inventory list included (so the money can get back to the right people).

      I won't be there on Friday, but Nozu-sensei said they're expecting a LOT of students to come through this year, so I'm sure they'd welcome extra help! I'll forward you an email from Chika-san so you'll have the volunteer information if you decide to go on Friday.

    I am not sure if the JASTB organizers are on this meetup, but I emailed them to let them know that I want to help out and there is a delivery failure notice that keeps bouncing back to me =(
