What are you doing this weekend? Come to the Tofu Festival! Saturday, August 12 from 2pm-10pm and Sunday, August 13 from 12pm-6pm. The Tofu Festival is a fundraiser for Little Tokyo Service Center, where I work, and I will be there all weekend, along with maybe 20,000 others who will attend the Tofu Festival and Nisei Week.
If you've never been to the Tofu Festival, you should come on down to Little Tokyo. There are over 40 food booths from local restaurants and dishes like tofu tacos, tofu pizzas, tofu pate, tofu ice cream, tofu chili, tofu pancakes, and so much more!
There will be a Tofu Eating Contest, Anime-D marathon, over 65 health and fitness vendors and arts and crafts marketplace, a tofu boutique, Iron Chef Cooking demos, a Wi-Fi Scavenger Hunt and an entertainment stage with taiko groups, hip hop dance groups, etc. On Saturday night, there will be a concert with Ill Again and Blackalicious.
Little Tokyo, 237 S. San Pedro Street (between 2nd and 3rd Streets). Free parking at City Hall (might not be accessible on Sat. afternoon), and plenty of pay parking nearby. Admission Price is $8 for adults.
If you have questions, call 213/473-3030. If I'm not outside helping out with the Marketplace, I might be answering the phones!
It's hip to be square! So see you there!
