Don’t miss Japan Festival Boston 2018 on Boston Common April 29th, bringing real Japanese culture and cuisine to the United States. Best of all, admission is free!
In 2016, this outdoor “Matsuri” saw 60,000 visitors enjoy over 100 cultural booths, exquisite Japanese food, and musical performances from local and Japanese entertainers.
The voice over for the video above is designed to encourage sponsor/vendor participation. Boston Common’s “Matsuri” opened in 2012 with 10,000 attendees. By 2016, that number ballooned to 60,000, making Japan Festival Boston one the highest-attended cultural events on the East Coast. Many travel from across the country or around the world to enjoy an afternoon of Japanese culture in downtown Boston. As a result, vendors can always expect a diverse and enthusiastic audience for their products and services.
Japan Festival Boston’s Mission
