Experience Japan: Mississauga's Japan Festival 2024

Hello everyone!

In this post, I'm going to share an exciting event in Mississauga (a city approximately one hour from Toronto): the Japan Festival! Mark your calendars for August 17th (Sat.) -18th (Sun.)  and head over to Mississauga Celebration Square for an unforgettable experience.

Last year, I attended the festival and it was an absolutely fantastic experience! The square was full of vendors offering Japanese foods, unique goods, and so much more! Some of the foods available at the event can be quite difficult to track down even in the GTA, so whether you're homesick for Japanese foods or a Japanese cuisine connoisseur, step on down and you very well may find the gem you've been searching for!  
But the festival is not just about vendors! You can witness amazing performances, including traditional dance, Taiko drumming, and martial arts demonstrations. I can't recommend the Taiko drumming enough--you can see the passion of these drummers while feeling each thump of the drum in you chest! These performances provide a wonderful glimpse into the rich cultural heritage of Japan.

Mississauga has done an incredible job designing a city square for gathering and celebrating. Celebration Square features a stage, sound system, large LCD screens, and plenty of space to sit and enjoy the event. What's more, if the Japan Festival isn't to your taste, Celebration Square hosts many other events throughout the spring and summer (all of which are free to enter). How about a free movie night on the big screen outdoors? Well, Celebration Square has you covered, featuring free movie nights every Thursdays starting early July.

These Mississauga events provide great opportunities to explore different cultures, meet new people, and enjoy a fun day out with family and friends. Be sure to check it out! Mississauga events calendar
