If you’re looking for bucket list adventures, then participating in festivals around the world is the ultimate way to make memorable travel experiences.

Wherever we are traveling, we always try to discover what festivals, big or small, are happening in the area, not only so we can join in on the fun, but so we can learn about the people.

Festivals Around The World

Remember you are guests at each of these festivals, so follow the local cultural etiquette of each. If you’re not sure, ask a local or research beforehand!

San Fermin (Running of the Bulls), Pampalona, Spain

A rocket is launched, cheers ring out, corks are popped and champagne is sprayed around as eggs and flour are thrown in a warm gesture of ‘welcome to the party’ – Spanish style.

Oktoberfest, Munich, Germany

For two weeks in October, this festival is all about beer. Don’t come here expecting anything else, well apparently there are some parades and rides outside the tents.

Full Moon Party, Koh Phangan, Thailand

This is one festival for the backpackers! I can’t even begin to imagine how insane this party must be now, all those years after I went in ’99. It was crazy back then.

St Patrick’s Day, Dublin, Ireland

No matter where you are in the world, celebrating St Patrick’s Day on March 17th is a lot of fun. Experiencing it in Dublin, however, is a celebration to put on your festival bucket list.

Hogmanay, Edinburgh, Scotland

At Hogmanay you can walk freely around the streets of Edinburgh, drinking as much alcohol as you like, with plenty of port-a-loos available for you to relieve your burdens.
