Sakura Festival 2019  

The 12th Copenhagen Sakura Festival will be held on 27 & 28 April, and everybody who would like to experience Japanese culture, taste Japanese food, and celebrate the arrival of the spring time is welcome to join!

Sakura Festival is organised by a non-profit association, Copenhagen Sakura Festival Committee, with many help of volunteers and generous donation and support by sponsor organisations.

Without the help of the volunteers and sponsors, we cannot continue the festival year after year. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to those who help out every year and to the precious sponsors.

We are also open to new collaboration ideas as well as sponsorship in order to continue the festival for many more years.

If you are interested in supporting the festival or being a new sponsor of the festival, please contact us. (Contact Information at the bottom of the website.)

For those who come to the festival, please note that Sakura Festival is proud to be one of the most “clean” festivals in Denmark.

It is indispensable that everybody who participate and visit the festival bring back their own garbage and even to clean up around you as you leave. Japanese way!

You are welcome to pack your own garbage bag or two together with your picnic set. 🙂
