Next weekend, 4th of July weekend, is the SF Valley Japanese American Community Center event. It's Saturday and Sunday, July 3 & 4. I didn't see much info on the event, but it's similar to Sun Valley. Here's a link to their site.


I don't know about the rest of the country, but there are events like this throughout the Summer in Southern California at various community centers and churches/temples.

Nisei Week in August is a big one. It's actually not just a week. Here's a link if anyone is interested.
