**Wondering about the weather? We have hundreds of hot dogs and all the delicious Japanese-style fixings, and we'll be going ahead rain or shine! If it does storm we may move some things inside and/or adjusting the performance schedule, but the party will go on, so hope to see you there!!!**
Come celebrate Ottawa’s 11th annual Japanese Summer Festival on Sunday, July 19, 2015 in front of City Hall at Marion Dewar Plaza!
Thanks to last year's highly successful 10th anniversary, JETAA Ottawa is teaming up with the City of Ottawa again this year to hold the festival at Ottawa City Hall in the heart of Ottawa, rain or shine. Enjoy traditional and contemporary Japanese-Canadian performances and demonstrations, including martial arts, shamisen, kimono wearing, Japanese calligraphy, crafts, and displays. For the adventurous, sumo suits will be available for a small donation and those looking for a taste of Japan, can try Japanese-inspired hot dogs or “JETAA dogs” for free! This festival caters to all ages and for the children, come check out the children’s tent, balloon animals, and face painting.
We are looking for volunteers for the festival day. If you might be interested in volunteering for the festival – even just a couple hours – please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Bring a friend and volunteer together!
