The 2021 Japan Festival, scheduled for October 3, 2021, has been canceled due to continued issues with COVID-19.

Greater Kansas City Japan Festival

However, our 2022 GKCJF has been scheduled for Saturday, October 8, 2022. We have already started planning to make our 2022 festival a special one.

If you are missing enjoying our festival performances and events, you can enjoy some of our events on our GKCJF website by viewing them by clicking on the “2020 Virtual Festival” tab. You will find about twenty videos featuring performers, workshops, and martial arts that you can enjoy until our 2022 GKCJF.


Because we cannot have a physical festival, we are offering our virtual festival content free to the community! Please consider placing a donation to the Greater Kansas City Japan Festival in place of admission this year.
