Notice of Cancellation of the 66th Okinawa Zento Eisa Matsuri (All-Island Eisa Festival) 2021

Thank you for your continued support of the Okinawa Zento Eisa Festival Executive Committee (hereinafter referred to as the "Festival Executive Committee").

It is with great regret that we have decided to cancel the 66th Zento Eisa Matsuri (hereinafter referred to as the "66th Festival"), which was scheduled to be held this year from August 28 to 29, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

As we announced on our official website on June 14, 2021, the final decision of whether or not to hold the festival was set to be made on the last day of July, and we proceeded with preparations to hold the 66th Festival until then. However, in light of the spread of COVID-19 in Okinawa Prefecture, it was determined that preventive measures would be difficult.

The Festival Executive Committee is committed towards making the next festival a success, and ask for your understanding and cooperation on this matter.
