Kampai Toronto, Canada’s largest sake festival, is back for another year in Toronto’s Distillery Historic District. This year’s event is focused on highlighting “the new face of sake culture,” bringing the centuries-old tradition of sake brewing and enjoyment into the modern era. Presented by the Sake Institute of Ontario, the event will bring together over 150 sakes from more than 50 breweries, guaranteeing there will be something for every palate. And this year’s event is not just featuring sake, either. Participating food vendors will include a selection of Toronto’s top chefs serving up delectable dishes to complement Kampai’s array of featured drinks.

The sixth annual event celebrating Japan’s preferred potable has also added a few special features that are sure to make this year’s event even more exciting than the last. This year, organizers will be adding an adjacent outdoor market along historic Gristmill Lane, featuring music and crafts designed to showcase sake culture in Japan. Additionally, organizers are promising that guests at this year’s event will be treated to more than a few surprises. The event is guaranteed to be an exciting opportunity to experience Japanese culture and expand your palate.

Kampai Toronto is being held on June 1 at The Fermenting Cellar. Tickets sell out every year, and this year is likely to be no different, with 600 people expected to attend. Make sure to pick up your tickets soon!
