wonder festival 2021

This year’s Wonder Festival 2021 Autumn event was set to be held at Makuhari Messe in Chiba on September 20, but that’s no longer the plan. The Wonder Festival Executive Committee announced the official cancellation of the event due to the rise of COVID-19 cases throughout Japan and the State of Emergency that has been extended as a result.

The committee made the decision in an effort to protect the health and safety of those who would be traveling from all around Japan to attend the event. Refunds are available to the general public through convenience stores at which they were purchased, and dealers will get a refund as well as a 50 percent discount off future event participation. 

Following the Autumn 2020 and Winter 2021 events, this marks the third Wonder Festival event to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
