Tentative: Samba Carnival 2020 | HIGASHIMATSUYAMA
September 19 @ 15:00 - 20:00Free
Samba Carnival in Higashimatsuyama
The Higashimatsuyama Samba Carnival is an annual festival held close to the Tobu Tojo Line Higashimatsuyama station. Due to the situation with the coronavirus outbreak, the 2020 date and details have not yet been confirmed. There is a high likelihood that the event will be completely cancelled. To date Higashimatsuyama have cancelled events up until the end of July. I will update when more information becomes available.
The carnival takes place from 3 pm to 8 pm. The samba dancing starts from 5 pm. Dancing is on the street and on the main stage. Most of the activity is on the “Botanen” street at the east exit of Higashimatsuyama Station. There are festival stalls along the street.
