Start spring off right with a day at the Sakura Days Japan Festival. Located in the beautiful VanDusen Botanical Gardens, this two-day 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 budding pastel sakura — the Japanese cherry blossom. The gardens host this fair between 11:00 am PDT to 7:00 pm PDT on Saturday, April 14th and 11:00 am PDT to 5:00 pm PDT on Sunday, April 15th, 2018.
As the festival takes place in the outdoors, bring appropriate attire as it may be raining or the fields might have mud. 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 for entry; tickets are available for purchase online.
