The Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) and Fort Worth Botanic Garden invite visitors to celebrate fall in the Japanese Garden while exploring the arts and culture of Japan during the Nov. 7–8 Fall Japanese Festival.
Hosted in cooperation with the Fort Worth Japanese Society, the festival includes cultural demonstrations, performances, unique shopping opportunities and fantastic foods.
Special care and planning have gone into ensuring that the event meets all of the safety requirements of the Tarrant County Health Department. The main attraction will be the Japanese Garden itself, which is now aglow with fall color.
Performances have been moved outside of the Japanese Garden to ensure plenty of space between performers and the public. Highlights include:
-Performances by two Taiko drumming groups, karate experts and Master Swordsman G.K. Sugai.
-Displays of the miniature worlds of bonsai trees from the Fort Worth Bonsai Society, and demonstrations in Origami, Calligraphy and Japanese Games.
-Vendors selling treasures from origami jewelry to anime plush figures, star charts to crafts made with vintage kimonos.
-Food from Asian food trucks preparing delicious meals and snacks, as well as authentic Japanese cuisine prepared by the Fort Worth Japanese Society.
No tickets will be sold on-site, all tickets must be purchased online to adhere to admission limits. Recommended time of visit 2 1/2 hours.
No outside food allowed, and masks are required. This year, some activities may be modified to adhere to social distancing measures. Food will be sold at food trucks/concessions, and vendors/performers will adhere to safety guidelines by the City of Fort Worth.
