This year’s Blossom Picnic will be on Saturday May 11th from 11am to 3pm at Heiwa Garden in the Peace Park (opposite side of Artspring in Ganges, Salt Spring Island).
This year, we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the opening of Heiwa Garden. Collaborating with the Japanese community on Salt Spring Island, we will create a festival that will be fun for everyone, featuring music, martial art demos, cultural presentations, and everybody’s favourite: home-style lunches.
Date: Saturday April 14th from 11am to 2:30pm
