Event testimonials

Definitely one of the GREATEST and largest Obon festivals in the Bay Area. Being on par with Mtn View and San Jose, Palo Alto Obon Festival always gets a lot of the community to come out and dance on Sunday night, as well as service delicious food in the Dining Hall.

Yelp Reviewer

Perfect Japanese multicultural event at the Palo Alto Buddhist Temple! If you don't know already, Obon is that festival where hundreds of people line up to dance.

Yelp Reviewer

This is a family tradition that I've taken part in almost every year of my life since I was born.  It's smaller than San Jose and Mountain View's Obon festivals, but it feels more personable.
