July festivals Saitama

There are a huge number of festivals and events on this July, and indeed this summer, in Saitama Prefecture. Below you will find a round up of those events for the Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Umi no Hi (Marine day) public holiday in July. Marine Day falls on Monday July 17th in 2023. However, I have also included weekdays when there is a large festival on, which is quite often in July! I add new events all the time (as they are confirmed), so please do check back periodically! Moreover, a lot of these events are weather dependent – please do always also check with the official sites for any last minute changes / cancellations.

When I say everyday, I mean everyday that an attraction is open. Often locations close on a Monday or one or two other days in the week.

July Festivals, Fireworks and Events – by day

July 14th 2023: I am taking annual leave from tonight! And I will be travelling internationally and domestically for much of the next 6 weeks. So I won’t be updating this post again in 2023. You can see August’s events round up here – that I will update at some point in August! Have a great and safe summer. 🙂
