Tentative: Samba Carnival 2021 | HIGASHIMATSUYAMA

September 18, 2021 @ 15:00 20:00

higashimatsuyama samba carnival

Samba Carnival in Higashimatsuyama. As of July 9th 2021 the Carnival in Higashimatsuyama has not yet been cancelled. However, they have cancelled almost all other large events, so it is highly likely they will announce cancellation closer to the time. The carnival takes place in September, possibly the third Saturday of September if the event goes ahead in 2021.

The Higashimatsuyama Samba Carnival is an annual festival held close to the Tobu Tojo Line Higashimatsuyama station and the famous “baseball shrine” Yakyu Inari.

In a ‘regular’ year, the festival 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. In addition, there are festival stalls along the street.
