Nisei Week Foundation

Nisei Week Foundation

The Nisei Week Foundation is a nonprofit organization run entirely by volunteers whose primary focus is to produce a nine-day festival in Los Angeles highlighting Japanese and Japanese American culture. As Southern California’s largest and longest-running ethnic festival, we are proud to share this extraordinary event with the community. Combining our traditional cultural arts with new customs and events allows us to carry on the spirit of our founders who created the festival 75 years ago.

As the Little Tokyo community continues to grow, the Nisei Week Japanese Festival is a means to connect the diverse communities of Southern California by sharing the Japanese and Japanese American heritage and traditions through arts and cultural education.
