About
Alight at Takaku Station in Kiryu in early August and you will find a summer festival held that spans from Suenohiromachi-dori to Honmachi-dori. Events like rolling a giant pill-shaped marble down the sreet, parades of shrine palanquins, and a textile market are held. At night, the finals for the All-Japan Yakibushi Championship are held, with performances from past winners and a show of yakibushi singing. Colorfully decorated turrets are installed throughout town, and people throng to dance the yakibushi late into the night.

今年は何と言ってもブルーインパルスの展示飛行が楽しみです。
群馬県内初めての展示飛行です。8月4日が本番ですが、3日にも事前訓練飛行がある予定です。
昼はブルーインパルス、夜は八木節で盛り上がりましょう!

県外に転居してから指摘されたのですが、昼から夜まで1つの民謡で誰もが踊り狂う祭りというのは珍しいらしいです。
『桐生八木節まつり』の名の通り 曲は『八木節』のみで老若男女が踊って 屋台で食べたり飲んだりして また踊って…という3日間エンドレスでカオスな祭りです。
いうなれば『和製カーニバル』と言ったところでしょうか。
櫓やステージは数か所設置されますが、初心者の方は『本町5丁目』の大櫓は大群衆の狂喜乱舞のため遠巻きにしか見られないかもしれません。慣れていない方でも一緒に楽しんでくださるなら『本町6丁目』の方がお勧めです。
踊りを知らなくても大丈夫。気性は少々荒いけど義理人情に厚い群馬県民が一緒に踊ります。
なお 群馬県民は幼稚園から八木節踊りを叩きこまれますので 大部分が踊れます。

8月上旬の金曜から日曜までの3日間にわたって桐生八木節まつりが開催されます。3日間で約50万人訪れるので、群馬で最大級のお祭りです。いくつかの祭りをまとめて現在の桐生八木節まつりになりましたが、そのうちの一つが江戸時代の1656年から行われている歴史の長いお祭りです。桐生市内中心部の大部分の大通りを通行止めにして、大群衆が3日とも3時間弱にわたって八木節踊りを踊り続ける様子に圧倒されるので、機会があったら行ってみてください。

普段は静かな町 桐生市 8月の桐生八木節まつりは本町通り一帯がお祭りで賑やかになります。桐生市民なら知ってる八木節踊りを輪になって踊ります。初めての人も見よう見真似で踊れるようになります。屋台もたくさん出て楽しいです。

桐生市が最も盛り上がる夏の祭典です。2018年の桐生八木節は航空自衛隊ブルーインパルスの展示飛行もあり、非常に印象的でした。隊長さんが桐生市にある群馬大学工学部出身だった縁があったのでしょうね。

ケンミンショーでも取り上げられた桐生市の八木節まつり。三日間ひたすら八木節をBGMに踊りまくるという奇特な祭。
