CANCELLED Satte Summer Festival | SATTE

Satte Summer Festival

Satte Summer Festival is a four day annual affair every July.

The first day, this year 2020 is scheduled for Sunday July 12th from 2 pm. It is the day that the mikoshi, portable shrine, is carried around town. The children’s mikoshi is carried around town on the second day of the festival, which is actually four days later on July 16th.

The large lantern floats are probably the most popular attractions of this annual 4 day three hundred year old festival. You can usually see them on the main weekend of the festival in the evening.  This year those dates are Saturday July 18th and19th.

Over the 4 days there are different events happening around the exit of Tobu Nikko Line Satte Station. On this the first day, the festival floats will be in the Yumikiya Shrine for some of the afternoon, from about 2 pm.  More information here

This festival attracts approximately 60,000 spectators and there are about 20 festival stalls.

May 24th: currently there is no notification about any changes due to the coronavirus. Satte have cancelled all events until the end of June. They are probably waiting until the end of May to make a decision about all events scheduled for July. Please do check with the official website, linked in the grey details box at the bottom of the post, for any changes and / or cancellations.
