The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many of our member organizations to cancel major cultural celebrations that were planned in 2020. As an example, the Victoria Nikkei Cultural Society were not able to hold their annual Japanese Cultural Fair, which has been held over the past twenty years. Aside from disappointing the 1000+ attendees that come out each year, the organization lost its primary fundraiser.
The organization has decided to hold a virtual Japanese Cultural event in its place. They will live stream three hours of live and prerecorded Japanese cultural performances and demonstrations. This all takes place on October 24 from 12-3 PM Pacific Daylight Time. The event will be live-streamed at vncs.ca.
