    So cool! You e got some pretty interesting ones on your list! Like I didn’t know about the Punjab one despite being from India. The Venice one has got me the most excited 🙂

    Wow. I want to attend all these festivals. Each one looks amazing! Especially the white nights in St. Petersburg and snowbombing festivals.

    I’ve never been to any of these festivals but your post makes me want to attend them all! I’d especially love to see the Balloon and Ice & Sculpture Festival, they look amazing!

    Oh my gosh, Carnavale in Venice has intrigued me for years! I’ve always wanted to go to a masquerade ball, so I’ll just have to make my way over there one of these years!

    Wow, your list actually got me excited to go to some of these places! I’ve heard of the Sapporo Snow Festival and I definitely want to go to that someday. The Snowbombing Festival in Austria looks super fun too! (Can you tell, I’m into snow! haha!) And for music, the one in Morocco is definitely on my list now.

      Glad you like the post. How about Harbin? I have heard the ice lanterns look magical at night. I will definitely be going to Fez some day. Happy travels!

    I live in India but £’d never heard of the Hola mohalla! Sounds so interesting! Although, I’ve heard of the Pushkar fair, I’ve never visited it. Can’t wait to visit someday!

      I also want to go to Hola Mohalla someday and be part of the collective energy. I was planning for this year, but 🙁

    This is a really good list! I didn’t know there’s such a thing as an ice lantern! And I kinda would like to go to the Fez music one. Thanks!

    I love this post! I blog a lot about festivals too, but usually music/transformational ones (Like Burning Man!) I didn’t know about a lot of these cultural festies, but they’re not on my list… I’ll def share this post with my audience!

    Wow, all the festivals look amazing! The Garma Festival sounds extremely intriguing! Been to some of these places but have yet to participate in any of these festivals… Looks like I gotta time my travels right in future! XP

      Timing is the hard time, right? Don’t forget to share your photos when you attend any of these festivals.

    What an interesting listing of varied festivals from around the world. Those ice laterns in China are wonderful, and I enjoyed learning a bit of their history. I’m also drawn to the festival in Mongolia with the displays of great horse and rider skills.
