Three Important Developments

Now that the ball is rolling in JapanTown central, we're able to fine-tune the logistics and and give you all more details. There are three new important developments:

1. The Healthy Food festival becomes the Healthy Food & Green festival

We realized that there are some companies selling sustainable products that would like to participate in JapanTown and that and some of the healthy food vendors are featuring organic and sustainably-produced foods, so we are renaming this festival to recognize its "green" elements.

2. Festival location swap

The Soul Food festival and the Healthy Food & Green festival will switch locations (but not dates). Instead of being in Midtown, the Soul Food festival will now be located in the Upper East Side on September 26th. The Healthy Food & Green festival, instead of being in the Upper East Side, will now be in Midtown on August 22nd.

3. Exact location of the three festivals confirmed!

We finally pinned down the exact street locations of each of the three JapanTown festivals. Each festival (except the Soul Food festival) will be two blocks long.
