Sapporo Summer Festival Jul 19, 2019 - Aug 16, 2019

The Sapporo Summer Festival focuses on two main events, a beer garden, and a folk dance event (wait, are we in Japan, or is this Oktoberfest?) The beer garden goes on for almost a month and is held in an area that seats 13,000, making it one of the biggest beer gardens in Japan. A number of Japanese breweries set up tents, alongside stalls offering a more international selection. It's certainly a good place to enjoy a refreshing beverage in the heat of summer. The Hokkai Bon-Odori dance can then be seen towards the end of the Summer Festival, and you can even join in while crowds of locals dance their way through Sapporo. (Also, don't miss the costume contest held the day after the festivities end!)
