Design Festa

This is a place where any artist, amateur or professional, from anywhere in the world can show their stuff in their own way, regardless of genres or style conventions, as long as it is original. Held twice yearly since 1994, the event now features 3000 artist booths, performances, live stages, theatres, world cafés, etc. in a huge space filled to the brim with chaotic energy.

Design Festa Gallery is a related facility in Harajuku with 21 exhibition spaces that anyone can rent, as long as their artwork is original. There is multilingual staff at hand to guide foreign visitors as well.
