Although scheduled for both days, the main festival takes place on the Sunday with omikoshi (shoulder-borne shrines) being jostled through the streets and dashi (wheeled floats) being pulled and pushed.

The official name is the Kitazawa Hachimanjinja Matsuri, with festivities kicking off at 2pm on Saturday and 12 noon on Sunday.

The shrine is located to the south of Shimokitazawa Station in the Daizawa neighborhood.
