This year at Momiji, you will discover many new fundraising events, and plenty of old favourites! These events are a vital source of revenue for Momiji, helping fund the programs and services that make Momiji such a wonderful place to be. They serve an even greater role of building and strengthening our community. Like any community, we have familiar faces that attend every event, regularly volunteer, and donate whenever they can—but Momiji is always ready to welcome new friends! The following events are all open to the public, whether ticketed or free.

Momiji Yard Sale Extravaganza – Saturday, August 24th, 2024
Another old favourite returns this August: the Momiji Yard Sale! If you can’t make the Bazaar, then the Yard Sale is the next best thing, because anything that didn’t sell in June will be out again in August at an even lower price! Of course all the food will be freshly made, and as delicious as food from Momiji volunteers always is!
Admission is free, but make sure to bring your wallets for this cash-only event!
Japonica – Saturday, October 19th, 2024
As autumn arrives, so too does Japonica Live, and there is no better event for vintage, second-hand Japanese goods. Many of these pieces were treasured belongings of community members, then generously donated to Momiji to be sold and treasured once more. From ikebana and dishware to Japanese dolls and kimono, you are sure to find something truly special at Japonica Live!
Admission is free for this event!
