Support Keiro’s work to improve the quality of life for older adults in Our Community.
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. This year Keiro will host the first ever virtual Keiro no Hi Festival.
Keiro is proud to announce its first virtual Keiro No Hi Festival on Saturday, September 12, 2020. This free event will not be in-person but will be delivered as an interactive virtual format. Keiro no Hi, or “respect for the aged day” honors the older adults in Our Community and will consist of online livestream with performances, workshops, and special guest speakers.

Hosted bento lunch and special birthday gift pickup – CANCELLED1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. – Livestream for the virtual Keiro no Hi Festival
UPDATE 9/11/2020: Due to the unhealthy air quality caused by the local fires, we have decided to cancel the bento and special birthday gift pickup component of tomorrow’s Keiro no Hi Festival. The health and safety of our community’s older adults is our top priority and right now, it is not safe to be going out in these conditions.
