CANCELLED Annual Keyaki Spring Beer Festival 2020 | SAITAMA CITY
June 3 @ 11:00 - June 7 @ 20:00Free
The 2020 Keyaki Spring Beer Festival has been scheduled for the summer! Early summer: from Wednesday June 3rd to Sunday June 7th. Please God by that time COVID-19 will not effect scheduled events as it currently is in early March 2020….
UPDATE MAY 3RD – as the Coronavirus continues to spread, events in the Saitama Prefecture have been cancelled for May and early June. Unfortunately, even some events as far in advance as Winter, have also been cancelled. The Saitama Super Arena has not cancelled all events in June (yet), but they have cancelled the annual spring beer festival. It remains to be seen if the Autumn beer festival will go ahead.

Twice a year at the Keyaki Hiroba in Saitama Super Arena they hold a beer festival. Once in Spring and once in Autumn. Among its bragging rights is that it has the largest selection of craft beer of any beer festival in Japan. The event is held on the 2nd floor and 1st floor outdoor plaza.
Keyaki Spring Beer Festival Hours
Times: from 4 to 9 pm on Wednesday the 3rd, 11 am to 9 pm on Thursday through Saturday, and from 11 am to 8 pm on the last day Sunday June 7th.
It is free to enter, but you have to pay for the beer! While this one is really for the adults, they usually have attractions and activities for children too. However, please note that this is an extremely popular event and it is usually very crowded.
There will be a number of free music and dance performances held over the weekend, so bring your leisure sheet. Food is also available to purchase. For more free events in the Saitama Super Arena see here.
