YOUR FAVORITE EUROPEAN FESTIVALS?

Jump to last reply

Part of the joy of traveling Europe for decades now is the chance of seeing and taking it some of Europe's most popular and famous festivals.

Here are my top favorite festivals I have had the luck to attend - what are yours?
(In no real order of ranking)

QUEEN'S DAY - AMSTERDAM (One day in late April; now called King's Day)

OCTOBERFEST - MUNICH (Mid September to first days in October)

NEW YEAR'S EVE - AMSTERDAM (Dec 31 - not an official festival)

BLACKPOOL LIGHTS - BLACKPOOL, ENGLAND (August- November)

FESTIVAL LA MERCE - Barcelona (September ?)

GENTSE FESTIVAL - Gent, Belgium (July ?)

SINTERKLASS DAY (ST NICHOLAS' DAY) - AMSTERDAM (October)

NOTTING HILL FESTIVAL - LONDON - (August Bank Holiday)

CARNIVAL - VENICE - (six weeks before Easter ?)

MOSEL WINE FESTIVALS - various dates

GAY DAYS - AMSTERDAM (Last week August and first of July)

These are my favorite festival memories - ones I would like to see: Hogmanay, Edinburgh; Edinburgh Tattoo Off Festival; Midsummer's Night, Scandinavia; La Tomatina, Spain; the Love Parade, Berlin (now defunct I believe); Wife Tossing Festival, Finland; Tour de France stage and Paris arrival; Holy Week - Rome).

WHAT FAVORITE FESTIVALS HAVE YOU TAKEN IN - THAT YOU LIKED! Which Ones Are on Your Wish List?
