Experience a bit of Japanese Culture at the Matsuri! Japanese Arts Festival

On May 19th 2019, celebrate the 10th anniversary of Matsuri! Japanese Arts Festival in Juilliard Park in Santa Rosa. This festival (run by the non-profit Sonoma Matsuri) aims to give Sonoma residents an understanding of Japanese culture.

This Year

The 10th anniversary festival promises to be a bit special. There will be a Shinto Priest in attendance to lead the opening ceremony. Additionally, there will be music, dance, drumming, theater, martial arts, a Tea Ceremony, and mochi pounding (mochi pounding is very cool). It promises to be quite an event.


Have kids? Don’t worry. The festival provides a children’s activity booth to entertain and engage the littles.

Grab your friends and family and enjoy the culture at the Matsuri! Japanese Arts Festival, May 19th from 11-5. Admission is free.
