Although the event has millennia-old traditions, the contemporary edition began in 1979 as an effort to revitalize the culture of this ancient city. Today, about 3 million people visit this 20-day-long festival in March of countless parties and events throughout the city.

A water parade, competitions inspired by historic Venetian traditions, a gala ball, and a popularity contest for best mask design are all part of the festivities.

St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patrick's Day, the patron saint of the Catholic nation of Ireland, has ancient origins. Every year on March 17th, it commemorates the arrival of Christianity in Ireland and is regarded as one of Europe's best spring festivities.

It has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture over time. It is distinguished by the color green of the shamrock and features parades and other festivities, especially in Dublin, where the Irish Volunteers march. One of the most popular, it is also known as the "alcohol festival" because the Lentil prohibitions on drinking disappear on this day.

San Fermin

This is one of Europe's more traditional July festivities, as well as a huge festival in Pamplona, Spain.

Almost a million people visit the city during the week to take part in numerous celebrations such as the San Fermin procession, the struendo (when people congregate to play drums, pots, and pans), and the closing solemn ceremonial of Pobre De Mi.

The festival is well known for the running of the bulls, which takes place every morning from July 7th to 14th at 8 a.m. The spectacle is televised live on television, and the entire country of Spain becomes obsessed with matadors for a week.
