Sapporo Autumn Fest showcases the richness of food production around Hokkaido and its capital city Sapporo.
Hokkaido’s four distinct seasons of the year enrich its vast land and ocean. The snow accumulated on the land during winter turns into fresh and clear water in spring, which is essential to all kinds of crops to grow in the summertime. Autumn is the harvest season, and Sapporo Autumn Fest brings us the best opportunity to enjoy and appreciate the benefit from nature.
The eight sites along the Odori park strip bring you to the food world of Hokkaido.
Sapporo Autumn Fest is not an event of just eating, drinking or buying food. Through those opportunities, you will get to know more about the food in Hokkaido and the people involved in it: both your appetite and your heart will be fulfilled.
Get embraced with the autumn harvest from all over Hokkaido. Delight the palate and make long-lasting memories. It is only possible at this time of the year at Sapporo Autumn Fest!
Reproducing the ambiance of Sapporo’s sister city, Munich, Germany! It’s a venue where you can enjoy the atmosphere of Oktoberfest, the world’s largest beer festival.
