------------PRE REGISTRATIONS FOR 2019 ARE NOW CLOSED------------
On Sunday 19 May, 2019 the Toyota Car Club of Australia invite you to join us at the third installment of Sakura Picnic, Melbourne's major All Japanese Car & Bike Show.
About The Show
Sakura Picnic is about bringing Melbourne's Japanese automotive clubs together. We encourage your club to come along and put on a display, fly your flags, sell merchandise and talk to individuals about how they can become involved. Your club sponsors are also welcome to join our vendor alley!
At Sakura Picnic, there will be no awards and 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 and friends and enjoy the Food Trucks, coffee, ice cream and sausage sizzle. Sakura Picnic is a family friendly, alcohol & drug free event and no anti-social behaviour will be tolerated.
