After a two-year hiatus, the Sakura Taiko Fest is back! Join us for a full day of Japanese drumming performances by taiko players and community groups from the DMV area and beyond.
Hosted by Miyako Taiko, the Sakura Taiko Fest is one of the largest annual taiko gatherings on the East Coast. The event has grown from a small concert first held in a dance studio to a full day of free, family-friendly taiko performances. Each year, we welcome a number of groups and feature a variety of different taiko styles as a celebration of Japanese-American cultural and artistic traditions. This year we’ll be at the Sylvan Theater next to the Washington Monument for the first time, featuring performances by Kyo Daiko, River City Taiko, Nen Daiko, Dounen Daiko, Miyako Taiko, MHTX, and students in the Mark H Taiko School.
