The Kasukabe World Feast Festival, “Sekai no Gochisousama Festival”, is on this Sunday for the first time in four years. It is a relatively new festival that had only been on twice before the pandemic happened.
Kasukabe World Feast Festival
From what I can tell, it is not a particularly large food festival. It seems to be more of a food fair for locals. But disclaimer: I have never personally been to this food fair, just sharing information for the event for people living in the area.
However, according to this X (tweet), you can buy food from several different countries including multinational Halal cuisine. There is also cuisine from the Philippines, Pakistan, Russia, Israel and America. In addition, they have some Japanese food stalls, local produce and a flea market. They will have a live stage as well with some music and kids dance performances.

There is no official parking for this event and very few parking lots in the area. It is advised that you come by public transport. The park is about a five minute walk from Kasukabe Station which is on the Tobu Isesaki and Tobu Urban Park lines.
I can’t find an official website for this event. I initially saw information for the event on this X (tweet).
