Japanese Festival Darwin 2020
Saturday 7th September 2020 11am to 2pm
The Charles Darwin Centre (Paspaley building)
JFD is formerly known as the "Bunka no hi" which was held in November (during the wet season). This year, we decided to organise this popular AJANT's cultural event during the dry season so that many of you can enjoy without concerning bad weather.
It is a free entry event highlighting Japanese crafts, cultural demonstrations and performances. You are also able to purchase Japanese food, drinks and sweets.
This event was proudly sponsored by Northern Territory Government and supported by Paspaley Pearling Company, Darwin Kendo Club, Aikido Northern Territory, Darwin Shotokan Karate, Darwin Japanese Koto Trio, INPEX Family Band, Atsui Taiko, Darwin Languages Centre, Solidarity Cleaning Services and awesome volunteers!
