PROGRAM Special Events

This annual festival welcomes all service members, their families and local Okinawans and Japanese to partake in a weekend of festival fun with favorite festival attractions for all ages including Fun Land's rides and bouncers, game booths and more. Hungry revelers will delight in delicious cultural foods and food offerings from MCCS including USA staples such as sizzling burgers from Bulldogs, succulent BBQ beef brisket and juicy chicken from Hickory House All-American BBQ, scrumptious pizza, and, for adult patrons, refreshing beverages from Kanpai Lounge.

As a part of MCCS' Hard Corps Music Series, this year's festival will also feature two legends of red, white and blue rock 'n roll-southern rock greats Molly Hatchet performing Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and rock guitar virtuoso Ted Nugent LIVE on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. Molly Hatchet, originally founded in 1971, is still going strong with a planned album release and special tour to honor service members this year. Performing since 1958, Ted Nugent has released more than 34 albums, sold over 30 million records and played well over 6,000 concerts. He'll be wielding his hollow-body Gibson Byrdland guitar for revelers at this year' Hansen Fest.
