8th Annual “Omatsuri” – August 11, 2018

Our 8th Annual Japanese Festival “Omatsuri” is scheduled to be held on Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 10 AM – 5 PM.  Our committee has been working hard finalizing the details for this event and have a terrific day planned for your enjoyment.  This site has been updated with all of the information required to plan your day with us.  Please take a moment to browse through the various sections to see what you can expect from this year’s event.

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

“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 bouncy houses 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 11th to support the members of the Japanese Canadian Community as we celebrate our heritage, culture and traditions.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2018 Festival “Omatsuri”!
