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 unique festivals celebrated all over the world. Cultural, religious, art, and music festivals connect us to our roots, our culture, and our values. They help us celebrate our heritage and our traditions. Whether it’s a new year’s celebration or an art festival with decades of history, festivals are an important part of our lives.
