Festival Vacation Ideas

Festival Vacation Ideas #1: A festival can be great if you like a party atmosphere with lots of people and a variety of food and entertainment. There are lots of festivals around the world with different themes. With a little searching you should be able to find some that have a theme to your liking. I have a few here to get you started thinking.

The National Storytelling Festival is held every October in Jonesborough, Tennessee. Large circus-type tents are set up downtown where everyone gathers to enjoy the talents of gifted storytellers from around the world.

Just one example out of many is Bill Lepp. He is the winner of five "Biggest Liar" titles telling original, Appalachian tall-tales. Other storytelling festivals are the Corn Island Storytelling Festival in Louisville, Kentucky.... Toronto Storytelling Festival, Ontario, Canada.... The Tejas Storytelling Festival, Denton, Texas.


Festival Vacation Ideas #2: Enjoy your vacation and festival at the Québec Winter Carnival in Canada. This winter carnival is one of the biggest anywhere.

The Québec Winter Carnival has been a Canadian tradition for half a century with loads of fun activities for the whole family.

You will find world-class sporting, artistic, and cultural activities. Some examples are night parades, ice fishing, slide runs, snow sculptures, music concerts, horse-drawn sleigh or dogsled rides, and skating.


Festival Vacation Ideas #3: Albuquerque, New Mexico is host to the International Balloon Fiesta which is a very popular idea for a festival vacation. Here you can see hundreds of hot air balloons all rise together up into the sky. Various balloon competitions and races are part of the festivities.

The most spectacular moment is the Balloon Glow where the balloons go up at night and simultaneously fire their burners to light up the sky. They have special shape balloons in the form of various things like flying houses, cars, cacti, ristras, bottles, cans and animals.


Festival Vacation Ideas #4: Every March, Macon, Georgia is home to The International Cherry Blossom Festival. Come celebrate spring in the "Cherry Blossom Capital of the World". Besides the beauty of 300,000 flowering Yoshino cherry trees you can enjoy a host of other activities.

There are nightly concerts with top regional and national talent; breath-taking air shows, hot-air balloons, an incredible Bengal tiger show, a marathon, historic tours, fun parades, dazzling fireworks displays, and amusement rides.


Aloha Festivals
Festival Vacation #5: Hawaii’s largest festival is the Aloha Festivals. Held in Honolulu, Aloha Festivals is a statewide cultural celebration of Hawaii’s music, dance and history.

There are over 300 events held on six islands during September and October.

Nearly 1 million visitors come from around the world to participate in this island tradition.
