20 International Festivals You Don’t Want to Miss

One of the best parts about international travel is getting to attend festivals wherever you go. Attending festivals is a great way to immerse yourself in your destination’s culture – plus, it’s just plain fun. Here are 20 festivals to add to your travel bucket list:

1. Carnival all over Brazil

A time of costumes, parties and debauchery (sort of)! The whole country forgets about its problems and dances the night (and day) away!

2. Kumbh Mela in India

One of the largest religious festivals in the world, Kumbh Mela is a Hindu pilgrimage, where many people bathe in the Ganges to cleanse themselves of all sins.
