Theme – Festivals

A festival is an event ordinarily celebrated by a community and centering on some characteristic aspect of that community and its religion or culture. This constitutes typical cases of glocalization, as well as the high culture-low culture interrelationship. Festivals often serve to fulfill specific communal purposes, especially in regard to commemoration or thanking to the gods, goddesses or saints: they're called patronal festivals. They may also provide entertainment, which was particularly important to local communities before the advent of mass-produced entertainment.

There are different kinds of festivals which are celebrated across the globe. This could be a celebration of good harvest, cultural, religious, art, or music. There are also different ways on how they celebrate their kind of festival. Whether it’s a seasonal festival honoring the new year or an art festival with decades of tradition, festivals help connect us to our roots, our culture, and our values.

Have you been to some places and attended different festivals? What type of festival did you enjoy the most? Take a look at some great and lovely layouts below that are related to celebrating festivals and be inspired to create your own festival-themed scrapbook pages!

Carnivals

This type of festival may have its roots in religion, but today it’s less about celebrating religious figures and more about partying hard. Carnival celebrations take place in the streets, with parades full of people, typically with lots of colorful floats on display, carried down city streets. There are costumes, masks, confetti, balloons and, above all, music. These, for sure, are fun and great to celebrate!

Seasonal Festivals

Seasonal Festivals are generally considered festivals that celebrate a season. These festivals and celebrations serve as milestones in the passing year while building and strengthening the community. Our relationship with nature and the cycle of the seasons has long been celebrated in every corner of the country. Celebrating the changing of seasons surely is so lively and interesting!

Food and Agriculture

Food Festivals throughout the world are often based on traditional farming techniques. These festivals are related to the food culture of an area, whether through the preparation of food served or the time period in which the festival is celebrated. These are a great way to try new foods and learn about some local restaurants and businesses. A food festival can even be a great place to make new friends. If you are planning your next vacation, consider going to a food festival.
