About This Event
The Japanese Fall Festival is a celebration of authentic Japanese culture highlighting Springfield’s 32-year-old sister city relationship with Isesaki, Japan. Each year, a delegation of Isesaki (伊勢崎市) citizens travels to Springfield to contribute to the festival through demonstrations and interactions with attendees.
In response, Springfield sends a local group to perform at Isesaki’s city festival each year. These groups make an appearance at the Japanese Fall Festival: Uke 66 recently performed in Isesaki and The Shandies perform in Isesaki this August.
