The Japanese culture is important to the history of Edmonton and the Spring Festival will celebrate that history. It will be an excellent opportunity for the community to learn more about the culture and to experience traditional ceremonies such as the tea ceremony.
Edmonton printing companies will most likely be helping the organizers of the Kurimoto Japanese Garden Spring Festival to prepare for and to advertise the upcoming event by providing them with banner printing, poster printing and brochure printing services.
The Devonian Garden takes up 190 acres at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, in addition to the Kurimoto Japanese Garden it features greenhouses, a butterfly house, a native peoples’ garden and a sensory and healing garden. There is also a gift shop and guided tram tours. It is open daily from May to October.
