A major festival that symbolizes summer in Sapporo!
The Summer Festival, now in its 61st year, is a summer tradition in Sapporo that lasts a whole month. For around a month starting early July, beer gardens are set up in and around Odori Park! The Summer Festival closes with a Bon festival dance as summer in Sapporo reaches its height. The Toyohiragawa Fireworks Festival in late July is another popular attraction.
