Japanese Festival At Hendrix

Hendrix College

Hendrix College, the University of Central Arkansas (UCA), and Arkansas Tech University will co-host the first Central Arkansas Omatsuri Japanese Festival on Saturday, April 7 from 2-4 p.m., at the Brick Pit near the center of the Hendrix College campus. The festival will feature Japanese food, games, cultural activities, music, and dance performances. Admission is free, and the festival is open to the public.

Since the summer of 2016, Japan Outreach Initiative Coordinator Aya Murata has been working with students, faculty and staff from all three schools, as well as Japanese community members, to raise awareness about Japanese culture in Central Arkansas. The initiative aims to provide opportunities for college students to share their knowledge about Japan with other college students and the local community in order to grow future leaders in Japan-U.S. relationships, as well as deepen the understanding of Japan in the Conway community.   MORE
