Yoyogi Park weekend festivals 2012

If you've been following VegOut Tokyo since last summer, you'll know I'm a big fan of Yoyogi park and the weekend culture festivals that are held there in the warmer months.  They're a fun, cheap way to get outside and spend a summer afternoon.  While the vegetarian friendliness varies from week to week, you'll always find a relaxed atmosphere with Tokyoites enjoying their food and drink out on picnic tables and leisure sheets.

Online English information about the schedule tends to be limited, so here's a rough translation of what's available in Japanese from this blog.

Yoyogi Park event schedule for May 2012

May 12th (Sat) - 13th (Sun): Thai Festival in the event area

May 12th (Sat): zombie walking in Yoyogi Park

May 16th (Wed): NICO Touches the Walls - free concert at the stage in the event area

May 19th (Sat) - 20th (Sun): One Love Jamaica Festival in the event area

May 20th (Sun): the 15th Kagoshima Ohara Honmatsuri at Dogenzaka Bunkamura-dori

May 26th (Sat) - 27th (Sun): Laos Festival in the event area

May 27th (Sun): Tokyo Earthday Market in Kouen-dori (the pedestrian road leading up to the event area from Shibuya)

I'll post information about events in June and beyond soon!

The event area is across the road to the south of the park.
