It’s that time of year again Yep the Nihonmachi Street Festival is the first weekend of August (2nd and 3rd). Nakayoshi has been running a food booth for several years now. Once again we will be serving hot udon & cold somen. However this year you may also purchase a scoop of curry (my favorite!) to go with your noodles.

This is our largest fundraiser for the year and need all the assistance we can get for another successful run. We will need assistance in preparing and selling udon & somen for both days. Sure it’s lots of work, but we always have a fun time working together and raising money for the organization.

We have two volunteer shifts: 8am-2pm and 12pm-7pm both days. Please note you don’t have to stay for a whole shift as we’re happy with any help you might be able to provide.

As in past years we are having a volunteer orientation to go over food preparation and training. It will be held at Haruka’s house on Friday, July 25 at 7:30pm. It’s optional but highly recommended to familiarize yourselves with our udon & somen and also our preparation steps.

Sign-ups for the volunteer orientation and booth shifts are on our Google spreadsheet here:  Please remember to bring hats/hairnets and aprons to your shift.

Email us at nakayoshi.ncwnp[at] with any questions.

Hope to see you all at our booth at the festival. Some pictures from last year!
