Programs and Events

Sakura FestivalSakura Festival - Cherry Blossom Festival
Sakura Festivals trace their roots back to ancient Japan, where the cherry blossom was considered to symbolize a life lived to the fullest, no matter how brief. The Sakura Festival is also a reminder of fresh beginnings and the renewal of the spirit that comes with spring. It is an opportunity for the entire San Marcos community to immerse themselves into a wide variety of Japanese culture. 
HoliHoli - The Festival of Colors
'Holi' the festival of colors celebrated in India, particularly with dance, food, music, and colored powder to offer a spring parallel of Navratri. On the day before,a bonfire is lit in the main squares of the villages and colonies. People gather around and celebrate the event with singing and dancing, which is symbolic of the victory of good over evil.  Join ISA as they continue this tradition, and experience their rich culture through the food.
