As in previous years there will be a diverse group of artisans and craftspeople offering many beautiful and unique treasures for your viewing pleasure and for you to take home. There will be activities and demonstrations for all ages. Children can enjoy making art, getting their faces painted and eating snow cones. Throughout the day live demonstrations including formal tea ceremony, traditional Chinese dancing and kendo (Japanese swordsmanship) will be performed. Musicians will demonstrate the Taiko drum, Shakuhachi (flute) and Koto (stringed instrument). To top this all off sit under the shade of the redwood trees and enjoy a delicious bento box treat, homemade baked goods and SMZC jam.
Activities for kids to be announced!
