We will have different types of ramen, all ready for you to try and slurp to your ramen delight! We will have ten ramen vendors, each ready to serve their delicious recipes in 12-ounce servings! And we are going totally ramen crazy with a ramen eating contest, ramen inspired art by local artists, live entertainment, vendors, and a beer garden!
Taking place at the Port Pavilion on Broadway Pier, located at 1000 N Harbor Dr, San Diego, CA 92101, this event will make you go crazy for ramen! Go ramen crazy!
We love ramen and welcome you to show your love of ramen, too!
The San Diego Ramen Festival started as a Ramen Eating Contest at the Asian Cultural Festival of San Diego. Our committee loves ramen so much, that we wanted to incorporate some ramen fun in the festival – and it was such a hit that we had to create a festival just for ramen!

About Japan Society of San Diego and Tijuana – Co-presenting Organization of the Ramen Festival
The mission of the Japan Society of San Diego and Tijuana is to promote goodwill and advance business, civic, educational, and cultural interchange and understanding between the people of Japan, San Diego, and Tijuana.
The Japan Society of San Diego and Tijuana (JSSDT) was formed in 1996. Prior to that time, separate organizations existed, including an independent Japan Society of Greater San Diego. The existence of separate entities meant that the Japanese business community and others interested in Japan-America relations were unable to give their complete support to any one organization. A consensus developed that an independent, unified organization, based in San Diego, was essential to meet the community’s needs. Learn more about the JSSDT at www.japan-society.org
