We’ll be presenting several performance sets between 6:30 and about 9:30.

Most nights we’ll be in the village at the top of the escalators, but for a few nights we’ll be down by the parking lot outside the zoo entrance. You can see us those nights without buying a ticket – but the lanterns are wonderful and we highly recommend going to see them!

We were lucky enough to join some of our friends from the taiko community last year at this event, and we’re excited to have another opportunity. (Thanks to Mark H Rooney, Miyako Taiko, and all the other local organizers!)

If you’re near DC, or need an excuse to go, please join us for a great day of taiko! Details here: https://www.markhrooney.com/event/2019-sakura-taiko-fest/
