YokoDana Kimono Venue Info:
We're making final preparations for our last Cherry Blossom Festival of the season. The Sakura Matsuri of The Brooklyn Botanic Garden
(BBG) will be held this weekend, April 30 & May 1, 2016. Our booth -- and other vendors -- will be located in the Osborn Garden part of the BBG, just inside the northern-most gate (near museum). Vendors area is open from 10:00am to 5:00pm, but festival lasts until 6:00pm.
However, if you're planning to come see us, we strongly suggest you come Saturday. As of this post, the forecast for Sunday is pretty much rain and wind. If the forecast holds true then we will not be able to open our booth -- or fully set up -- on Sunday as we risk ruining our lovely vintage silk kimonos, fabrics and items in such weather.
Reminder that if you shop with us, please tell us you are a member (or online/Facebook fan) to be eligible for a discount. This year's password is ichiban.
To learn more about what we bring to venues please check our venue page
. We can tell you that for this venue we do NOT bring long womens' kimonos, only nagajuban, haori and michiyuki, a few mens kimonos, as well as our vintage kimono fabrics and hand-made accessories from our vintage kimono fabrics. We look forward to seeing our New York 'regulars' at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Our next, and last,venue of the year will be in June at AnimeNext 2016 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
