Japan Fest – Volunteers Needed

The Victoria Nikkei Cultural Society and FUDO Japanese Restaurant will be holding Japan Fest 2024, a festival celebrating Japanese culture.  It will take place on Saturday, July 20 at the Broadmead Village Shopping Centre from 3:00 – 5:00 pm in the courtyard outside FUDO.  There will be Japanese cultural performances such as taiko, bon odori, martial arts and minyo music.  This is also a fundraiser for the VNCS, through the sale of Japanese food, Things Japanese and a raffle.

We require a few more volunteers in the following areas:

  • Food preparation from 9:00 am to 2 00 pm.
  • Set up from 1:00 to 3:00 pm
  • Manning the tables from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.
    • Food sales
    • Kakigori table
    • Raffle table

There will be FoodSafe certified supervisors in the food-related areas, so you do not have to have a valid FoodSafe to volunteer at these areas (although it’s nice to have!)

If you can help, please contact Yumiko at mailto:volunteercoordinator.vncs@gmail.com or Tsugio at mailto:tsugkurushima@gmail.com.
