It just isn’t spring without a stop 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. The gardens host this fair between 10:00 am PDT to 6:00 pm PDT on Saturday, April 13th and 10:00 am PDT to 5:00 pm PDT on Sunday, April 14th, 2019.
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. Two performers from Japan are scheduled to attend: taiko drummer Keita Kanazashi and shamisen players KiKi.
As the festival takes place in the outdoors, bring appropriate attire as it may rain 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 (includes discount) or in person at the door.
