The Matsuri Festival is back in Barcelona City! Join us in an unprecedented celebration of the best of traditional Japanese culture, right here in the heart of Catalonia! The Matsuri encourages cultural exchange through traditional dance, performance, music, food, and revelry. After a difficult pandemic situation for all, we are looking forward to reconnecting with the Japanese community in Barcelona, and we hope that you will join us June 4th and 5th at Moll de la Fusta to make it a truly unforgettable event.
We hope the whole metropolitan community will turn out for the event. Past editions have seen more than 25,000 party-goers attend, but we won’t rest on our past laurels.
This year, we want to go bigger and better and You are the main character!
We hope to see you at Moll de la Fusta, on Barcelona’s breathtaking oceanfront, but we are tasking you with an important mission: Prevent important traditional Japanese practices from falling into oblivion, by joining with us to put all hands on deck. We need your help in organizing the best Matsuri Festival in history. Staying true to our roots, we will enjoy cultural and traditional folk entertainment, which you may have a tough time finding even in Japan!
We have commissioned works from spectacular Japanese artists, with exhibitions of their works being displayed during the festival.
We want to unite people through the charm of Japanese tradition. We want to tell an alternative narrative to popularised J-Pop, Manga and Otaku. Join us for a truly traditional and breathtaking perspective. We hope the youth will be reconnected with the essence of Japan, and we view this goal as central to our society, goals, and future evolution. Japan has a rich cultural diversity, and we will capture this at Matsuri, 2022.
We look forward to propelling forward this diverse cultural exchange, together with you. So tie your kimonos, pour your sake and come celebrate the Land of the Rising Sun with us at Matsuri, 2022.
