Design Festa is Asia’s largest design and art event featuring thousands upon thousands of booths and exhibitors. Artists hail from all over the world and set up for a two-day stint at Tokyo Big Sight. The full scope of artistic expression will be on display—including live painting, crafts, clothing, ceramics and performances, to name a few.

The event takes place every spring, along with another in fall. Just recently a summer edition has been added that features a student-centered exhibition called Gakuten.
