Mukai Haiku Festival

Mukai Farm & Garden will host our fourth annual Haiku Festival in March, bringing the beauty of haiku, an ancient style of Japanese poetry, to Vashon Island residents once again. The festival has drawn hundreds of entries and fans annually from countries all over the world!

The Mukai Haiku Festival is a juried poetry competition for people of all ages. Contestants can submit up to three haikus. Each haiku will be divided into one of five categories: Nature, Social Justice, Heritage, Reflections, and Young Poets. Prizes will be awarded in each category, as well as for “People’s Choice.” Only original, unpublished haiku will be considered for awards.

Contest winners will be announced on Sunday, April 9th.

Mukai will print and display a selection of individually calligraphed haiku on the grounds of Mukai Farm & Garden throughout the month of April. We encourage visitors to Mukai Farm & Garden to vote for their favorite haikus, the People’s Choice award, online or at the kiosk.

No entry fee. Donations welcome.
