The Ramen Expo in Expo Commemoration Park (more commonly known as Banpakukoen) takes place this year over four consecutive weekends (including Fridays) in December, so the the dates for the festival are actually December 1st to 3rd, 8th to 10th, 15th to 17th and 22nd to 25th.
If past years are any indication, there will be up to 40 stores from around Japan setup in the park, although each weekend will see a different group of ramen makers landing at the expo.
Entry to the event is free and you can buy tickets at the venue to exchange for a bowl of ramen at any of the stalls.
