Matsuri Japan Festival
Experience and enjoy the many wonders of Japanese culture.
Sat 7 Dec
11.30am - 7.30pm
Matsuri is a Japanese festival held every year to celebrate Japanese culture and cross cultural friendship between the Japanese and Australian people.
This event was founded back in 2006, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Japan and Australia’s friendship. Since then, Sydney’s Japanese community have been working hard to host a traditional style Matsuri, making this event a Summer staple for Sydneysiders.
You will find many Japanese festival attractions at Matsuri, including Japanese food stalls, Japanese beer and Sake drinks, and gorgeous Japanese items.
At their exhibition booths you will find traditional arts and crafts workshops with activities like Origami and calligraphy. Over on the stage you’ll find yourself entertained by traditional festival dancers, as well as karate demonstration, Taiko performance and much more.
