I meant to post this much earlier in the week, but better late than never, I suppose.
Food bazaar and games begin at 11 AM both Saturday and Sunday, and the ikebana and bonsai displays are on view all day both days. Here are the daily line-ups:
11:30AM - Shigin Performance (think of this as traditional Japanese rap)
Noon - Martial Arts: Bahala Na Escrima
12:30PM - Odori performed by Bando Junjiro (Japanese classical dance)
12:45PM - guided tour of the temple
1:15PM - Bonsai demonstration
1:45PM - Hawaiian dance
2:30PM - Taiko by Stockton Bukkyo Taiko
3:30PM - Kendo

5:30PM - Koto music
7:00-8:00PM - Bon Odori
11:30AM - Martial Arts: Stockton Judo Club

Available food items are typical: Hot dogs, hamburgers, sushi, udon, SPAM musubi, curry, tempura, and teriyaki chicken, of course.
ETA: I would have linked to the temple's website, but their webmaster appears to have been asleep at the switch for several months, so there's naught there.
