Celebrate the history, music, and culture of the Land of the Rising Sun at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden’s Fall Japanese Festival on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 13-14, 2021. Centered around the venue’s Japanese Garden and spreading throughout the 110 acres of manicured grounds, this is a family-friendly experience for all ages.
See & Do
The beautiful Fort Worth Botanic Garden will transport you to Japan to continue celebrating the Year of the Ox, with demonstrations and performances of traditional Japanese dance, taiko drumming, martial arts, swordsmanship, and art. There will be displays of raku pottery and exquisite miniature bonsai, and there will also be food trucks and concessions sold during the event, along with goods such as vintage kimonos and plush anime characters. And of course, you can also enjoy the gorgeous fall foliage throughout the grounds.
