SAVE THE DATE! Nikkei Matsuri is back on August 31st + September 1st, 2019

Thank you to all who came and supported our festival last summer – it was a great success, and tons of fun! Planning is now underway for this year's festival. Stay tuned for updates!

Nikkei Matsuri is one of the largest Japanese festivals in Canada! It brings an authentic Matsuri experience to Burnaby every summer at Nikkei Centre over the Labour Day weekend, attracting over 14,000 people. Hosted by the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (NNMCC), our two-day festival has something for everyone, and aims to showcase the pride of Japanese culture here in Canada. 

All proceeds benefit the NNMCC's cultural and community programs, educational outreach, and museum. Find out more at
