Okinawa International Carnival

1:15pm – 6:00pm
Free

Okinawa is a crossroads of the seas. Over thirty different nationalities make Okinawa City their home, and the Okinawa International Carnival celebrates all of them.

Previous years have seen Samba Queen competitions, biker runs, live music, tug-of-war competitions, karate demonstrations, and much more! There are also souvenir stands and food vendors offering regional delicacies from all over the world. Entrance is free, so get to the Okinawa City Gate area sometime in the late morning and spend the day being cosmopolitan in Okinawa! Please note that there are traffic restrictions due to Carnival activities, so use public transport where you can.

For 2022, the parade will be held on Koza Gate Street only from 1:15 p.m. and the stage performers will begin at 2 p.m. on the Ongaku Hiroba Stage.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
