Florida JETAA


Upcoming Events

Saturday 06/24/2017 - Tampa Natsumatsuri, 5pm - 10pm -
Christ the King Church,  821 S Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa

We are pleased to announce that the 2017 Tampa Natsumatsuri has been set for June 24 from 6pm-9pm! As always, the Natsumatsuri organizers need your help to make the festival a success.  Tampa Natsumatsuri is a non-profit, community-based festival.  This means it's the Tampa Japanese cultural community that make it happen.  The festival organizers are looking for exhibitors, vendors, game operators, cosplayers, martial artists...anyone who participates in Japanese culture to come show off what you love.  This year, Tom Gregorich (Orlando Regional Representative) is the new director, though John McGee (Tampa Regional Representative) will remain deeply involved. For more information on how to help out, contact them at TampaNatsuMatsuri@gmail.com. View the full posting for more details on volunteering, T-shirt purchasing and festival activities.
