The Nagoya Walkathon and International Charity Festival is a foreign organized charity event started in 1991 in Nagoya, Japan that is held annually on a Sunday in May.

This event is sponsored by the American Chamber of Commerce in Japan (ACCJ) and Nagoya International School (NIS), and its main purpose is to join the international community with Japanese friends and companies in raising money for local orphanages and charities.

Attendance in 2009 was between 2000 and 2500 people, and the event raised 8 million yen for orphanages and local charities. Nagoya Mayor Takashi Kawamura participated in the 2009 Walkathon.
