Large Overseas Groups Arrive

Preparation for WMDF continues apace. The site is going up all around Motomachi Park, and artists are arriving. Today we welcomed groups from Indonesia and Taiwan. You can find out all about our international artists on the Artists tab, and the full event schedule on the Events tab. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Artist & Staff T-shirts

Thanks to our sponsors,, Apparel ShokuFuku Kyoukai, we took delivery of a consignment of staff T-shirts and artist T-shirts. It’s the first time that our staff have been able to get official T-shirts without paying, so it’s very good for staff spirit. Our volunteers at the final meeting can be seen modelling the staff version of the T-shirt below. The artist version of the shirt is white, and will no doubt be visible around Motomachi Park from Aug 5.


First International Artists Arrive

WMDF is underway! Our first international artists, stalwarts Toozalii Community artists, are in Hakodate and will be covering Motomachi Park and the Perry Hiroba with flags over the next two days. They are seen below at Hakodate’s tourist spot the Trappistine Convent. The main WMDF event is coming very soon, and the weather forecast looks good, so get ready for some serious festival action.
