Schwab Festival

This year’s Camp Schwab Festival will take place Saturday, March 24 and Sunday, March 25 from 1 to 9 p.m. both days on Camp Schwab adjacent to the BeachHead. This annual festival welcomes all service members, their families and Japanese citizens to Okinawa’s northernmost Marine camp to partake in a weekend of festival food and fun with attractions for all ages including Fun Land’s rides and bouncers, game booths, Oculus Rift virtual reality and delicious foods including delectable offerings from MCCS.

Hungry festival-going revelers can enjoy USA staples such as sizzling burgers from Bulldogs, succulent BBQ beef brisket and juicy chicken from Hickory House All-American BBQ, pizza and wings and MCCS’ brand-new offering—305 Latin Bistro. This new and exciting festival food offering will feature cuisine with a Miami twist. Offerings will include a special steak sandwich flavored with chimichurri sauce, bacon-wrapped chicken-on-a-stick and Spanish flan with caramel.

Patrons 20 years of age and older and enjoy refreshing adult beverages from Kanpai Lounge.
A great entertainment lineup will be on tap throughout the weekend including a FREE performance by metalcore band “Asking Alexandria” on Saturday at 7 p.m. Asking Alexandria, originally from England, are heavily influenced by American rock—including Metallica, Mötley Crüe, Skid Row, Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold.

Free shuttle buses will provide transportation to and from designated parking lots on the base. As always, MCCS encourages everyone to drink responsibly and to not drink and drive.
