9th Annual “Omatsuri” – August 10, 2019

 

The 9th Annual Japanese Festival “Omatsuri” will be held on Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 10 AM – 5 PM at Max Bell Centre.  

Our committee has had several meetings now and preparations are beginning for this year’s event, we will update the site as details are finalized.

“Omatsuri” is the Japanese term for a “traditional festival”. Visitors to the festival will be treated to authentic Japanese customs, presentations of traditional music, dance & song, martial arts demonstrations, and more!

There will be games and activities for the kids, galleries of local Japanese arts and crafts as well as several food kiosks featuring traditional Japanese cuisine. Don’t miss out on our fabulous sake tasting as well as our beer gardens!

We hope you will join us on August 10th to support the members of the Japanese Canadian Community as we celebrate our heritage, culture and traditions.

NOTE:  There is limited parking on site, we encourage all visitors to use Calgary Transit as the LRT stops right at Max Bell Centre

We look forward to seeing you at the 2019 Festival “Omatsuri”!
