For the Community, Embracing All Communities
The Nihonmachi Street Fair considers itself the original “melting pot” of street fairs, with many aspects of Asian-Pacific American life—and San Francisco’s cultural life—expressed through performance, tradition, art, music, food, and community outreach and service. The formula must work since the organizers estimated that over 30,000 guests participated in this year's event!
Nihonmachi Street Fair proudly evolves to reflect the city it celebrates while staying true to its original idea: to use this event as a platform to mentor Asian-Pacific American youth and foster their leadership and communication skills through volunteerism and community service. The event is produced, staffed, and organized by youth volunteers, thus providing practical, hands-on experience in collaboration, entrepreneurship, and problem solving.
The Nihonmachi Street Fair is proud of its history in serving the community through education, service, and youth mentorship. Nihonmachi Street Fair is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization. Tax ID: 94-3088515
