Nikkei Matsuri is Burnaby’s family-friendly Japanese festival in the heart of Metro Vancouver


A matsuri (festival) has long been part of the cultural landscape of the Japanese community, not only in Japan but in many cities across North America. This third annual Festival is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever and you can look forward to an amazing weekend of Japanese culture, including food, performances and activities for the whole family.


Nikkei Matsuri is a one-of-a-kind experience that brings all of the elements of visiting a matsuri in Japan to our backyard here in Burnaby.
