Their repertoire includes songs in the modern Kumi Daiko style, popular amongst Taiko troupes in the US, as well as many songs in the traditional Dentou Geinou style of ancient Japan. This strong presence of traditional style Taiko is what makes Takohachi so unique amongst American Taiko troupes. They will be performing on the main stage at Overlook Park.

    Ori Tahiti (Tahitian dance), with its rhythmic drum beats and fast hip/foot movements, is one of the most physically challenging cultural dance styles of the Pacific. Dedicated dancers gain strength and endurance right along with grace, poise and agility.

    “At our workshop we will not only teach students the fundamental movements of ori tahiti, we will immerse them in the music, art, language, and culture of the Society Islands. Join us on a journey to the South Pacific as we show you how to shake it Polynesian style.”

At the same time, they teach them important values that will help them in their future endeavors.

     

     


    Showcase a Country’s Flag

    Our goal is to celebrate cultures at home and around the world. In order to create a festival atmosphere and to showcase the many places that Ridgefield families have roots, we plan on having flags of all nations along Pioneer Blvd and Main Street in the downtown area, as well as around the roundabouts. How many flags we have depends on how many families participate. Families who participate will have their name displayed at the festival (if they wish)!

    If you are interested, please fill out this form. The cost per flag is $25 and the deadline for submission is August 10th.


    Make sure to stay till the end of the event to see the Chinook Tribe perform our closing ceremony!

    Oktoberfest. This year, Experience Ridgefield will be held on the same day as Oktoberfest, which is sponsored by the Ridgefield Main Street association (“RMS”).  Ridgefield Oktoberfest is a family-friendly event with German-style food, local beers, and live music. All of the funds raised by the event will go toward the RMS mission to revitalize the Ridgefield downtown area. Oktoberfest, originally a celebration of a royal wedding, began over 200 years ago in a field in Munich, Germany. It’s now the largest festival on earth, with people coming all over the world to celebrate Bavarian culture and, of course, drink beer. But it’s not necessary to leave the United States to celebrate Oktoberfest. Many towns across the country – including Ridgefield – have embraced their German heritage, putting together their own festivals.

    Tinkergarten provides early childhood learning in the outdoors. The curriculum engages a wide range of kids ages 18 months to 8 years. A season of Tinkergarten lessons are engineered to help kids develop a range of school readiness and lifelong-learning skills. Registration is available on-line for classes at Abrams Park on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays beginning September 10.

    Families meet outdoors to connect and learn through play. In a 5-part class each week, Tinkergarten Leader, Tiffany Burnette, will facilitate an expert-designed play scenario, allowing children of various ages and needs to explore, problem solve, communicate, collaborate, and create together. Parents and caregivers learn, too, as we’ll share insight into your child’s development.

    The program progresses to meet each child’s needs season after season. This fall, the curriculum will support the development of a range of cognitive, social/emotional and physical skills. Our focus skill for the season will be problem solving.

    Tinkergarten registration here.
