Urawa Saitama Stadium 2002 Bread fair in 2024

The third annual Urawa Reds Bread Festival will take place this April. Following the success of the previous two bread festivals in Saitama Stadium, Japan’s third largest football stadium, the fair will take place again in 2024. However, the organizers have been organizing bread festivals for many years, including the largest bread festival annually in Yokohama. The 2023 fair was just half a year ago in September, but this year they are having the event in April, just before Golden Week.
