MATSURI 2nd Toronto Japanese Summer Festival by Kurakake

For the second year, MATSURI will return to Torontos Yonge-Dundas Square! With live music and dance performances, a market featuring the best of Torontos Japanese food, and new this year, a fashion show, we are excited to present the 2nd Toronto Japanese Summer Festival in the heart of the city.

The Toronto Japanese Summer Festival is an exploration of Japanese and Japanese-Canadian community, and a celebration of Japan, its culture, art, cuisine and quality of life through its products and services.

Hoping to attract even more than the over 20,000 guests of 2013, the 2nd Toronto Japanese Summer Festival will be bringing back the popular taiko drumming, yosakoi dance, Japanese folk music and geisha models!

The Festival is open to the public and free for everyone. Here is who you can expect to see at MATSURI 2014:
