Matsuri Festival of Japan
The Arizona Matsuri is an annual festival which celebrates Japanese culture and heritage, traditional and modern. The two-day event held at Heritage & Science Park in downtown Phoenix features the sights and sounds of Japan, art, crafts, music, dance and much more. The family friendly Matsuri is free to all. Japanese food and goods from over 60 vendors are available for purchase and the beer and sake garden is a great place to relax. The Arizona Matsuri was first held in 1984 and will be celebrating its 34th anniversary in February 2018.
The theme for the 2018 Arizona Matsuri is Kokeshi Dolls, which are handmade from wood, have a simple trunk and an enlarged head with a few thin, painted lines to define the face.
