Misato Big Bon

The Misato “Big Bon” dance festival was held annually on August 11th, a public holiday for mountain day, before the pandemic. However, in 2023, it is on August 5th instead. It takes place in Niodori Park in Misato City, near Misato Chuo Station on the Tsukuba Express line. The dance festival starts at 4 pm and ends around 8.30 pm. There are food trucks at the venue on the day.

In 2020 they cancelled the event on account of the Coronavirus outbreak. The prefecture cancelled several events in Misato, and throughout Saitama, during the summer of 2020 due to the pandemic. Its to early to tell what will happen in 2021, but please do check with the official website for the most up-to-date information.
