Our biggest annual event is called Matsuri, where we bring together traditional Japanese food and snacks as well as great performances from the whole Pittsburgh community. Planning for this event takes multiple months, and all the JSA members come together to make the best Japanese festival experience possible.
Last year's Matsuri theme was 夜の屋台 (Yoru no Yatai), or Autumn Night Market, and revolved around the flavors and colors surrounding autumn.
Thank you for attending last year's Matsuri!
More information about this year's Matsuri will be released later in the Fall 2023 semester. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, please enjoy the photo gallery below to see how previous Matsuri's were like.
