The Laos Festival is one of the first of the succession of ethnic festivals that runs at Yoyogi Park until the end of November.
Past years have seen an estimated 180,000 people turn out to eat Laotian food and experience some Laotian culture. Performances include dance troupes, traditional musicians, Lao and Japanese singers as well as workshops for language, dance and cooking. There is an environmental focus this year with eco-bag making and environmental activities including being the cleanest festival of the year.
Children will be kept entertained in the Kids Corner run by the students and teachers of the Sakura International High School with plenty of fun activities.
