Welcome spring with Sakura Days Japan Fair 2017

The Tea Ceremony in 2016

The tea ceremony is the embodiment of poise and hospitality.

After a long, cold and snowy winter, the bright pink blossoms of spring are just around the corner with the Sakura Days Japan Festival. Returning to VanDusen Botanical Gardens, this two-event celebrates everything Japanese in a fun festival atmosphere.

Spend the weekend with Japanese culture through live performances, music, food, arts, demonstrations and crafts and more under the pastel sakura — the Japanese cherry blossom. The gardens host this celebration from 11:00 am PDT to 7:00 pm PDT on Saturday, April 8th and from 11:00 am PDT to 5:00 pm PDT Sunday, April 9th, 2017.

As the festival takes place in the outdoors, bring appropriate attire as it may be raining. Parking is limited, so save the hassle and take transit (either the #17 bus, or walk from the Oakridge-41st Avenue Canada Line Station west along 41st Avenue, and then north along Oak Street) to reach VanDusen Botanical Gardens (about a 15-20 minute stroll).

Paid admission is required and tickets are available for purchase online.
