FREE Japanese street food festival kicking off in Montreal next month

A a few-working day festival celebrating Japanese culture and street foods is kicking off in Montreal up coming month.

Following a two-12 months hiatus because of you-know-what, YATAI MTL is returning to the Mile Stop for a absolutely free a few-working day festival from June 10 to 12.

YATAI MTL will host avenue foods stands, a industry, cultural applications and audio, and is anticipated to appeal to a lot more than 15,000 individuals more than the a few-working day function.t

In Japanese lifestyle, a yatai, which translates to “shop stand,” is a small mobile foodstuff stall. Yatais, courting again to the 1600s, are pretty well known in Japanese tradition during summer season festivals (Matsuri). They typically pop up in festival type, close to purely natural sights and corporate workplaces.

YATAI MTL suggests it will split the occasion into three locations: a gourmet, service provider, and cultural space. Yasuko Tadokoro, YATAI MTL’s Founder, says by way of the event, he wants “to share with Montrealers of all origins the Japan that I appreciate.”


The festival’s “Gourmet Area” will include things like 10 booths with “some of the ideal Japanese cooks from Montreal.” YATAI MTL’s “Merchant Area” will incorporate more than 20 Japanese merchants marketing products and solutions, and the “Cultural Area” will host “shows and workshops for all people.”

Workshops incorporate origami producing, daruma drawing, and intros to both the Japanese language and sake rice wines.

Far more aspects about collaborating outlets, gatherings and vendors can be located appropriate right here on the YATIR MTL web-site.
