Plans are already in place for this year’s Sakura Matsuri (Cherry Blossom) Festival, which will be held at the Cowra Japanese Garden on Saturday 27th of September.
Sakura Matsuri is an event held during the most beautiful season of the year. It is a time when the natural splendour of spring and the simple elegance of traditional Japanese culture combine in the unique Australian setting of the Cowra Japanese Garden.
As the name suggests, the family fun day is designed to interest visitors of all ages with a selection of traditional Japanese activities ranging from Tea Ceremony, Origami, and Bonsai demonstrations through to the fast moving excitement of Wadaiko Rindo Taiko Drummers, Karate, Aikido and sumo wrestling!
For those choosing to unwind and soak up some culture, there will also be a cocktail evening in the Garden for over 18’s only. Supported by Windowrie Wine, the night will be packed full of entertainment, including performances by Simone Thornett. Visitors are invited to try local food, wine and beer all nestled in the stunning surrounds of the garden. Tickets are $50 all-inclusive and must be pre-booked by the 25th to ensure a space!
