Quickly becoming one of the most popular events of the year at the JCCC, our annual Fuyu Matsuri – Winter Festival will be held on Sunday, December 1, 2019! Mark the date in your calendars, as we are only weeks away from the festival!

There will be great activities such as Christmas ornament-making, gingerbread cookie decorating, and many other interactive games for adults and kids. We will be featuring several live entertainment events, including our classic Harmonica performance, a Taiko performance, storytelling, and our fan-favorite Ramune Speed Drinking Contest. Also returning for second year is the Fuyu Matsuri Cosplay Fashion Show! Our much-anticipated special guest, Santa, will be available to take photos, so make sure you get a photo with him in between shopping at our Marketplace (Shotengai) and indulging in delicious foods like Oden, one of our Japanese winter favourites. Don’t forget that great prizes await at the Reindeer Raffle and Silent Auction!

General admission to the event will be $5, while JCCC members, seniors, and children ages 6-12 can get in for $3. Admission is free for all children ages 5 and under!
As a reminder, Fuyu Matsuri is a cash only event. The closest ATM is located in the Esso Gas Station at 843 Don Mills Road if guests are in need of cash, otherwise all guests are advised to take out cash beforehand at their convenience.

The JCCC is recruiting volunteers for this event, and volunteer registration is still open. All persons interested in volunteering for Fuyu Matsuri can sign up through the JCCC website at www.jccc.on.ca/en/volunteer/ by Thursday November 14, 2019. The deadline is fast approaching, so make sure you register soon.
