There are many different festivals held around the world throughout the year to suit every taste. Traditionally, festivals are a special day or period for a religious event or anniversary. They can also be an organised event such as a music festival, food festival, film festival or even a beer festival. Some are large involving thousands of people, others are small local gatherings.
People travel the globe to attend these elaborate events, and often make it the sole purpose for their trip. We have!
There are many festivals on my bucket list which I have yet to attend, so to help me compile this epic list of festivals around the world, I asked some awesome travel bloggers.
What a magnificent, diverse and eclectic list this is!
