Japanese Cultural Festival and Bazaar

When: Sat., Oct. 15, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2016

If the Internet is any indication, there are a whole lot of Americans enamored with Japan and all of its customs. If you are one such individual, you can now experience that culture sans passport and invasive security pat-downs at the Japanese Cultural Festival and Bazaar. This annual event hosted by the Japan-America Society of Southern Colorado promotes awareness and understanding of the Japanese culture in the community. The festival entry into UCCS's University Center is free, but be sure to bring a little spending money for the cool goodies. The bazaar features a vast array of pottery, kimonos, housewares and other unique items, while the live entertainment will showcase taiko, martial arts, flower arranging and shamisen music and dance. Of course, a celebration of all things Japan wouldn't be complete without food — you'll find bento boxes, sushi, snacks and sweets to sample. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., 1420 Austin Bluffs Pkwy., japanamerica.org. — Bridgett Harris
