Autumn Sake Festival 秋酒祭 will be taking place at Kagone Park 金公園, Gifu City in collaboration with the Gifu Prefecture Sake Brewers Association., having just wrapped up the event at Aichi Prefecture. Organised by ZIP-FM, a radio station based in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, the Autumn Sake Festival aims to celebrate the making of new sake under the autumn sky. 

October has traditionally been the time when rice is harvested, signalling the start of sake production. In spring, the sake made in autumn will have matured and be ready for consumption. The Gifu edition of this event will have 33 sake breweries from Gifu Prefecture showcasing their sakes, as well as live DJ performances and food stands.

  

You may purchase tickets at the venue for ¥3,500 (~$24 USD), or purchase an advance ticket for ¥3,000 (~$21 USD). A ticket will grant you: 10 virtual coins (each coin is worth ¥200), an original ochoko (a small sake cup), and a wristband that could be used to enter the venue again. The first 1,500 signups will get the 2023 limited edition ochoko, andaAdvance ticket buyers will get a tray that can be used to hold their ochoko and snacks. 

The ticket can also be purchased with the Sake Festival Guide app, which will give  you an electronic ticket, a virtual coin wallet (that can be used in future events hosted by ZIP-FM), and display information about sakes at the booths.
