J-POP SUMMIT FESTIVAL is an outdoor street fair, focusing on Japanese pop culture. With events and attractions in Post Street, Union Square, and the Japantown Peace Plaza, over 80,000 people attended last year's festival, making it one of the largest street fairs in the city. The festival consists of music, art, fashion, food, and film, so you will find something interesting!
JPSF takes place the weekend of July 19 and 20, 2014 and runs from 11am to 6pm each day.
The J-Pop Summit Festival is free for attendees!
Most events and booths and festivals are open to everyone, although a few special events have a small additional fee.
Most of the festival booths are located on Post Street, between Laguna and Fillmore, with many additional events at the Japantown Peace Plaza, and Union Square.
AOD has partnered with the J-Pop Summit Festival to create Anime Lane. Anime Lane is a special section of the Festival dedicated just for anime and manga vendors and artists. Essentially, it's a combined Dealer's Room/Artist Alley, all right there on the street.
Over 80,000 people attended last year's event, enjoying Live Music, Shows, Contests, Movie Premieres, and a wide array of some of the best vendors in the area. Attendees enjoyed the POP GOURMET Food Festival, Craft Booths, Anime Vendors, Live Bands, a Film Festival, and further performances at Union Square.
