The Japanese Friendship Garden hosts a number of special events throughout the year and is always looking for more volunteers to help out! Events may include:
- Major festivals such as Cherry Blossom Festival, O-Bon Festival and December Nights - Smaller cultural ceremonies like Seijin-Shiki or Shichi-Go-San, which are traditional coming-of-age celebrations - Opening art receptions for new exhibits
...and more! These opportunities are a great way to knock out community service hours, meet new friends, and enjoy the events from a behind-the-scenes perspective. Please reply to this ad for more information about upcoming events and volunteer positions.
Please note that the Japanese Friendship Garden does not accept court-ordered volunteer hours. Thank you for your understanding.
