LOS ANGELES – June 25, 2024 – Keiro is excited to announce that the seventh annual Keiro no Hi Festival will be held in-person on Saturday, September 21, 2024 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Japanese American National Museum in Little Tokyo.

A public holiday in Japan, Keiro no Hi or Respect for the Aged Day, honors older adults and their life achievements and contributions. The festival will include live entertainment featuring local older adult performers, access to JANM exhibitions, hosted bento lunch, vendors, and more. Complimentary transportation from various locations in Los Angeles, Orange, and Ventura counties will be available for attendees on a first-come, first-serve basis.

“Our Community would not be here today if it were not for the efforts of the generations that have come before us,” said Beverly Ito, Keiro’s president & CEO. “Hosting our Keiro no Hi Festival is one small way for Keiro to show our gratitude for our community’s older adults as models for aging with confidence and vitality.”
