The Japanese Fall Festival is a celebration of authentic Japanese culture highlighting Springfield’s 36-year-old sister city relationship with Isesaki, Japan. In typical years, Springfield and Isesaki exchange performers to entertain and share culture at each other’s festivals. These exchanges were cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19. We are so excited to resume the exchange this year!

Springfield Sister Cities Association donates half of the Japanese Fall Festival’s admission proceeds to the maintenance and development of the Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden, sponsored by Simmons Bank. The remaining proceeds benefit cultural programs which further Springfield Sister Cities Association’s mission of “Peace through People.”

For more information regarding the Japanese Fall Festival or Springfield Sister Cities Association, please contact us.
