Here's your need-to-know guide to world festivals and events . . . just in case you were dying to know when to get to Pamplona to watch the running of the bulls. Or when Mardi Gras infests New Orleans with Bacchanalian fever.
Or maybe you're just wondering what the Formula One schedule will look like next season, so you can have your DVR ready to record.
Whether you're planning your next trip and looking for something interesting to do, or if you just want to watch it on television, we'll have info on a variety of events in our Spiral Whirled Travels Festivals Calendar, with links to more detailed information all available at your fingertips. . . unless you happen to be all thumbs.
What's hot and what's not really depends on YOU.
If you truly are all thumbs, we suggest you keep away from the running bulls and attend the Bluegrass Music Festival, or the Toronto Film Fest instead. There are plenty of other things to do for those of us not ready to climb Everest this spring.
Try hitting Crayfish Season in Sweden, or start planning your costume for Carnivale in Brazil. We'll also alert you to national holidays and regional celebrations.
Whatever your imagined or soon-to-be-real flights of fancy require, we hope we can help you plan the interesting details to make your journey special.
