The Summer’s End Food Festival planned for this Sunday comes at a perfect time, says Mako Yoshioka, of Fort Lee-based Japan US Alliance (JUSA).
Korean, Mexican, Japanese food vendors highlight the September 16 event, which brings together much of North Jersey’s ethnic diversity in food and culture.
Latin music, a Korean chorus, Japanese folkdance, and Taiko drums will be featured in addition to the array of ethnic foods available for purchase, are an entrée to the variety of arts and music, says Yoshioka.
The autumn event takes place at Saddle River County Park, 760 Saddle River Road, in Saddle Brook (Otto H. Pehle area).
The Japan US Alliance has held a fall festival for several years. The group, primarily of Japanese professional men and women, who live permanently in northern New Jersey, is reaching out this year to include a diversity of cultural interaction and open areas of personal and professional association.
