Levitt Pavilion, in partnership with Japanese Arts Network, presents Japan Fest 2023 – a community-driven and multi-disciplinary festival of Japanese culture in Colorado featuring a concert from Japanese American Hip-Hop artist Lyrics Born.  Performances will celebrate music, cultural traditions, and heritage through genre-bending live music, dance, and aerial performances.  Artists include emcee and beat-maker 3Two, taiko drummer Courtney Ozaki, aerialist Leilani Rose, hybrid folk and street dance from locally grown crews, Okinawan sanshin player Gabriel Batmanglidj, and more.

The festival will also feature a market of artists and vendors, community organizations, and food trucks representing the multi-faceted cultural diaspora of Japan in Colorado.
