Aug 10-12: The Midwest Buddhist Temple’s long-running summer festival is a staple of Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood and one of Ho Etsu’s favorite festivals to perform. Ho Etsu got its start as a youth drumming group at MBT, and we remain gratefully and inextricably linked with the Temple community. Ginza is our chance to give back by performing on the festival stage as supporting entertainment, collaborating with the MBT Taiko ensemble and, in between shows, volunteering at the Ginza food stands and ticket counters.
Ho Etsu performs several times throughout the weekend and showtimes are posted below. There is a $5 donation to enter the Ginza Holiday Festival but with the entertainment, shopping, exhibits and food, it is totally worth it! Follow this link to learn more about: Ginza Holiday Festival
