Fujimi Children's Festival

The Fujimi City Children’s Festival is on this Sunday, April 21st, from 10 am to 3 pm. They say it is the 51st annual occurrence of the festival, but it wasn’t on two years in a row during the pandemic. Therefore its actually only been on 48 times! The festival was kept very hush hush in 2022 and 2023, but this year they are openly advertising it for the first time in years. Each year they have a theme for the festival. This years theme is “Fujimi City Children’s Festival: Connecting cultures together”.

Fujimi Children’s Festival

There are a number of different events on the day as well as a flea market. The flea market is run for children by children. The stage performances are also mainly carried out by children. There is usually hip hop and hula dance performances as well as taiko drums. There are some food stalls too. They have a “fureai” and activity corner which typically has some sort of bouncy castle and crafts, and there are usually police cars and bikes for kids to get up close to.

The festival is held in and around Bunka No Mori park in the Tsuruma area of Fujimi City. Which has a small playground for kids. It has some wisteria too. Probably a bit too early for them to be in bloom yet though. In the event of rain most of the attractions will be moved indoors to the prefectural recreational gym.
