Sakura Picnic 2023
In 2023, Sakura Picnic is expanding, opening the gates for owners of vehicles from all Asian manufacturers to display their pride and joy, make new friends, and enjoy a relaxed day under the trees at Bundoora Park.
We started Sakura Picnic in 2016 to unite Melbourne's Japanese car clubs with a show that had no egos or awards - just the true Japanese ethos of showing appreciation for everyone's individual tastes. Now in 2023, we feel the time is right to expand this concept to the entire Asian region, welcoming passionate owners with vehicles from Hyundai, Kia & Proton to name just a few.

There will be no awards, no egos, just a relaxed day under the gums of Bundoora Park, with great cars and great people. Bring your best picnic rug along with your family, friends and fur-babies (on-leash) to enjoy the food trucks, coffee, ice cream and vendor alley.
