Join us on the Labour Day Long Weekend from 11am - 7pm at the Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (Located at Kingsway and Sperling in Burnaby) for Japanese style food, games, entertainment, vendors and more!

Nikkei Matsuri is a unique 2-day experience that brings all of the elements of visiting a "matsuri" in Japan to our backyard here in Burnaby at Nikkei Centre. The festival has something for everyone, at any age, and aims to showcase the pride of Japanese culture here in Canada.

All proceeds from Nikkei Matsuri will benefit the mission of Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre -- to honour, preserve, and share Japanese culture and Japanese Canadian history and heritage for a better Canada!
