Mark your calendar for May 5, 2023, from 6:30 to 9pm CDT. The Daikin Festival is back and moving to Point Mallard Park!
Each year in May, beginning in 1994, Daikin America, Inc. employees produced a Japanese Festival in the style of Bon Odori for their North Alabama neighbors. Every year, that is, until the pandemic made it impossible in 2020.
Now, at long last, the festival returns, offering even more fun for the entire family.
The Daikin Festival delights attendees with live music, Japanese Folk Dancing, Shodo (Japanese calligraphy), Yakisoba (grilled buckwheat noodles with beef and special sauce), BBQ, hamburgers, refreshing drinks, and special prizes.
This year, the festival will conclude with a dramatic fireworks display by PYRO Shows.
Best of all, the entire event is free of charge, including food, drink, and entertainment, and is open to the public.
We look forward to the return of one of the largest Japanese cultural events in the Southeast US.
