Edmonton Japanese Community Association Summer Festival – the Natsu Matsuri 2017

Edmonton Japanese Centre and Argyll Park
The goal of this event is to create awareness of Japanese culture by providing a traditional Japanese summer festival experience for people in the greater Edmonton area on Saturday July 8th 2 – 8 pm. What does that mean? Children’s games, decorative lanterns, bon odori dancing, festival food, beer, karaoke, demonstrations, and shops, along with much more.
The Natsu Matsuri is truly a family event with a lot of work going into having Japanese games for the kids and prizes. Festival food will be provided both by professionals and EJCA. Small Japanese items will be sold at vendor tables. So, if you stop reading at this point, I want to make sure that at least you have decided to attend the second Natsu Matsuri – this event is being created with you in mind, so we want you be there to tell us how we do!
It is a wonderful chance to wear your Yukata…..no Yukata? No problem, there are rental Yukata at a selfie photo station!
