The only large-scale sake festival held in Downtown Toronto, the largest festival of its kind in Canada. ‘Kampai’ is the Japanese word for ‘Cheers’.
Kampai Toronto is organized by The Sake Institute of Ontario, a not-for-profit trade organization of Ontario’s sake importers, distributors, and manufacturers.
Kampai Toronto is a General Public event for guests 19 years of age & older. A dedicated Trade & Media session will be held also – for more information please visit the ‘Trade & Media’ section of the website or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over a 1000 will attend. However, admission tickets are limited, so purchase yours online before the event sells out — which happens every year!
Please refer to the new Admission packages which are group friendly.
Guests will have the opportunity to taste more than 175 sakes at Kampai Toronto, sourced from over 30 breweries from Japan, Canada and the U.S. Some of the products are or will be available at the LCBO, others will be unique to the event but available for order. Be assured that a diverse range of sake grades and styles will be made available by our numerous exhibitors.
Until Sunday, April 22nd, 2018 at midnight
There will be food and drink tickets for purchase on-site (20 Tasting Tickets — $40 value, each ticket is worth 2$). Admissions tickets at the door will depend on whether the event is sold out.
All tasting tickets included in the Admission packages can be used for food purchases as well as beverages.
