The 14th Yukata Festival in Yonabaru Town on July 7, 2024

  • Events

Heads up, folks! If you’ve ever wanted to swan around in a traditional yukata without actually turning into a swan, mark your calendars for the 14th Yukata Festival! This shindig goes down on July 7, 2024, at Yonagusuku Beach Park in Yonabaru Town. And let me tell you, it’s shaping up to be a blast — from the past!

What’s Cooking at the Festival? 🍢🎶

The local Social Dining and Drinking Association, which sounds a lot more official than your backyard BBQ committee, is throwing this bash to jazz up the town. And jazz it up, they will! Picture this: colorful yukatas as far as the eye can see, and no, they don’t come in 50 shades of gray.

The event is chock-full of fun, with a slew of food stalls (because munching in a yukata is an art form), live performances that’ll have you tapping your geta (those are wooden sandals, for the uninitiated), and even a brass band showdown courtesy of the Yonabaru Junior High. They’re blowing their own trumpets, and rightly so!

Plus, there’s a mobile amusement park rolling in. That’s right, the fun comes to you! It’s perfect for the little ones or anyone who’s young at heart but not in the knees.

Event Details 📅📍

  • When: Sunday, July 7, 2024, from 3:00 PM to 8:30 PM. This festival waits for no rain; it’s happening come drizzle or downpour. Just in case it decides to throw a weather tantrum, the severe kind, it might get canceled.
  • Where: Yonagusuku Beach Park, Higashihama 77, Yonabaru Town. It’s scenic, it’s historic, and it’s where you’ll be hanging out. [ Google Pin ]
  • Parking: No parking available on site. Use near by street parking and the parking lot in the shopping plaza across street from the park.

So, if you’re itching to dive into local vibes and rub elbows with the community—metaphorically, of course, because personal space is still a thing—this is your chance to soak it all in without actually soaking in anything, unless it rains. No need to RSVP, just bring your best yukata game and maybe a sense of humor. I won’t be there, but hey, your loss is your gain in new friends and memories!
