Tanabata Festival

Location Japanese Garden

Join us for Tanabata, a Japanese festival celebrating the alignment of two stars normally separated by the Milky Way. Hosted in partnership with the Japan-America Society of Alabama and the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, we invite you to hang a special wish on tanzaku (colorful paper strips) in our Japanese Garden.

During the celebration, enjoy a tea ceremony demonstration by Urasenke Birmingham Association and the beautiful bonsai display by Alabama Bonsai Society!

Free and open to the public | Parking is limited.
