Known as one of the three great festivals of Edo, the Nezujinja shrine Annual Grand Festival takes place in mid-September. Reportedly began in 1714, when Tokugawa Ienobu (the sixth shogun) established it at Nezujinja Shrine through the feudal political system. The festival floats were gathered from all over Edo (now Tokyo), which was so grand that it was called the Tenka 'world' Festival.

The festival includes traditional dance performances, street stalls and other attractions held around the shrine's historic buildings many of which have a history that goes back to 1706. The Edo-period architecture and vivid festival displays create a unique and lively atmosphere.
