Japanese Fall Festival returns to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden

the Japanese GardenThe Japanese Garden consists of seven acres filled with cherry trees, Japanese maples, magnolias, bamboo, bridges and ponds that are home to 1,200 koi fish.

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden’s annual Japanese Fall Festival is back and bigger than ever, expanding beyond the walls of the Japanese Garden and into the surrounding areas — which means more vendors, more food trucks and more opportunities to celebrate Japanese culture.

The Japanese Fall Festival will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23, and Sunday, Nov. 24. Last admission will be let in at 4 p.m., and general garden admission fees apply:

  • Adults: $12.
  • Seniors (Ages 65+): $10.
  • Children (Ages 6-15): $6.
  • Children age 5 and under are free.
  • Grow Members are free.

Entertainment will include performances by the Dondoko Taiko Drummers, Goisagi Daiko Drummers, Sakura & Okinawan Dancers, the University of Texas at Arlington’s Japanese Cultural Society Japanese dance group, demonstrations by G.K. Sugai, a traditional Japanese swordsman and Croft Taekwondo. The Fort Worth Japanese Society will have kimonos available for families to try on, and a Kamishibai theatre performance will occur each morning.

Additionally, families can enjoy Japanese crafts, games, calligraphy, origami and local mahjong groups will both play and teach the game.

Several vendors will sell anime, jewelry, antique Asian scrolls, stationery, art prints, bonsai trees and Raku pottery. Food trucks will include Spin Sushi, YIM Yam Food Truck and Bobaddiction.

A complete list of activities is available on the Fort Worth Botanic Garden website.


I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
