Celebrate Tanabata — The Japanese Star Festival

Wednesday, July 6, 2022


Celebrate Tanabata

July 1 to July 7

About Tanabata
Tanabata, also known as the Star Festival, means "evening of the seventh", typically celebrated on July 7th. This Japanese holiday originates from a Chinese legend of two "star-crossed lovers" kept separated by distance. Represented by the stars Altair and Vega, they are allowed to meet once a year, on the seventh day of the seventh month.

Make a Wish — July 1st through July 7th

Tanabata is celebrated by writing wishes on pieces of colorful paper, called Tanzaku, and attaching them to bamboo branches or "Wish Trees" in the hopes they come true. July 1st through 7th, visit one of our displays to write your wish and hang it from a "Wish Tree".
