Morikami Museum Rings in the Spring Season with Hatsume Fair 2018

Spring officially arrives when flowers bloom and cosmic cosplayers take over the Morikami Hatsume Fair on April 21-22, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, at Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens!

The museum’s largest annual festival, the Morikami Hatsume Fair will transform tranquil Park into a breathtaking Japanese spectacle of sights, sounds, and style! Guests will enjoy two stages of exciting entertainment. They’ll also have access to artisan, craft and plant vendors, specialty sake and beer selections, and Japanese street fare food. The weekend’s activities include martial arts, taiko performances, cosplay costume contests, and a high-octane, Japanese street wear fashion show.
