Event: Japan Festival CANADA 2022

Venue: Mississauga Celebration Square (300 City Centre Dr, Mississauga, ON L5B 3C1)


Japan Festival CANADA has been hosted in one of the multicultural countries in the world, Canada, to introduce and promote genuine Japanese food, culture and technologies.

After holding our Festival virtually in 2020 and 2021, we are pleased to announce that Japan Festival CANADA 2022 is being planned to return to an outdoor, in-person live event on the weekend August 20-21, 2022.

The concept of Japan Festival CANADA is to contribute in further success of establishing Canada and Japan Diplomatic Relations. Since the first year event in 2016, Japan Festival CANADA has been hosted annually in the summer. Japan Festival CANADA 2019 was successfully hosted welcoming 90,000 attendees.

Japan Festival CANADA is the largest Japanese Cultural Event in North America with the exciting entertainments such as traditional and modern performance, Pop Culture stage performance as well as the tasteful Japanese foods and many more to experience and enjoy Japan.

We look forward to seeing you again at Japan Festival CANADA 2022!
