Due to COVID-19, Keiro has decided to transition all of our scheduled in-person events in 2020 to alternative formats. Read full statement here.



Keiro no Hi, or Respect for the Aged Day, is a Japanese holiday that honors and celebrates older adults. Keiro and Japanese American Cultural & Community Center are partnering to host the third annual Keiro no Hi Festival in Little Tokyo. Last year, the festival welcomed over 1,100 attendees to enjoy the day.

Our festival is free to the public and includes intergenerational activities, performances, food, workshops, a vendor fair, and more.

This year, we proudly add a new arts opportunity, “Quality of Life” Fine Arts Showcase for community members to share their talent and art. For more information, please scroll below.

May 11, 2020 Update: After careful consideration, Keiro has decided to transition all of our scheduled in-person events to alternative formats for the remainder of the year as a result of COVID-19. Click here for more information. In the upcoming weeks, Keiro will announce alternative plans to replace our originally-scheduled programs. Please return back for more updates in the near future.
