坂出大橋まつり Sakaide-oohashi-matsuri Sakaide Ohashi Festival

Jp En


Sakaide Ohashi Festival held in August every year is the biggest event in the city of Sakaide in Kagawa Prefecture. The festival was first held in 1950 as “Sakaide Harbor Festival.” Since the Seto Ohashi Bridge was open to traffic in 1988, it has been called by the present name.

A lot of events are held all over the city during the festival period. Some include children’s drum float parade, dance performance by children, folk performing art stages, a popular music concert, and a concert by amateur music bands. The highlights are So-Odori (the grand parade of dancers), in which 3,000 dancers including spectators dance around the city, Sashi-kurabe (the play contest) of the big drums, which are placed on the gorgeous floats and parade through the city, and the display of fireworks over the harbor.
