Getting in the Festival Spirit
Plenty of warm days are now on the horizon with the arrival of spring and the highly-anticipated coming of summer. Accordingly, festivals abound with celebration themes of sun and soul. Festivals offer lots of fun–and generally for just a few coins–the chance to meet great people with common interests over a few days or an extended stay for good times that last forever. These advantages position the festival as a satisfying staycation or perfect go-to getaway.
Here are some of my favorite festivals sure to inspire and get you moving on your festival travel itinerary:
The Saint Lucia Jazz Festival
National Black Arts Festival
