Imagine yourself, being part of the customs and celebrations of different cultures, what an experience it is going to be! Well, for that we bring to you a list of cultural festivals from around the world that you should not miss.

  • La Tomatina: La Tomatina stands as an annual food fight festival occurring on the final Wednesday of August in Buñol, a quaint Spanish town. Originating in the 1940s, the festival has burgeoned into one of Spain’s largest and most renowned celebrations. People worldwide journey to Buñol to revel in the tomato-flinging frenzy.
  • Holi: Holi, a Hindu festival, commemorates the triumph of good over evil and the advent of spring. Also dubbed the ‘Festival of Colors,’ it involves joyous exchanges of coloured powder and water. While traditionally observed in India and Nepal, its allure has transcended borders, captivating audiences in the United States and the United Kingdom.
  • Songkran: Songkran, the traditional Thai New Year festivity held in April, doubles as the ‘Water Festival.’ Participants douse each other with water, symbolizing the purging of ill fortune to welcome a fresh beginning. Celebrated across Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar, it’s an exhilarating and vibrant experience.

Renowned for its beer tents, authentic German cuisine, and spirited melodies, this 16-day revelry kicks off in late September, culminating on the first Sunday of October. An ideal immersion into German culture, it’s a must-visit for beer aficionados.
  • Day of the Dead: The Mexican holiday, Day of the Dead, observed on November 1st and 2nd, serves as a commemoration of departed loved ones.
