The Greater Kansas City Japan Festival (GKCJF) is presented by the Kansas City chapter of the Heart of America – Japan America Society and is ran entirely by volunteers in association with employees of Johnson County Community College.

The festival was first hosted on the campus of the University of Missouri – Kansas City in 1997. A few years later, the festival relocated to our current location at Johnson County Community College. Each year, the festival introduces and educates 4,000+ visitors each year on the culture of Japan.

Planning has started for the 2017 festival! Keep checking back and visit our Facebook page for updates. We will add performers, workshops, presentations, etc as we finalize details.
