The United States of Festivals

Introduction

The United States of America is filled with all types of festivals. Some are religious, some are sports-oriented, some celebrate the arts and others celebrate food. These festivals take place all over the country in different cities and towns across America. They’re a great way to experience America while having fun with friends and family!

Nashville, Tennessee

  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Home to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and the CMA Music Festival in June, Nashville hosts a huge number of festivals. The Gaylord Opryland Resort’s Opryland Christmas takes place every December, with more than 2 million lights illuminating the grounds. The city also hosts the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards each year at its headquarters on Music Row–and that’s just scratching the surface!

The Woodlands, Texas

The Woodlands is a planned community in the U.S. state of Texas, located about 40 miles (64 km) north of Houston. The Woodlands is one of the most affluent and fastest-growing cities in America, with an estimated population of 94,730 as of 2016.[1] In addition to its location along Interstate 45 between Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth, the city has more than 1 million square feet (93,000 m2) under construction[2] and is home to The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion,[3] an outdoor music venue that hosts many musical events throughout the year including South by Southwest Music Festival.[4]

The Woodlands has been rated one of the best places to live in America by Money magazine,[5] Livability.com,[6][7] RelocateAmerica[8], Forbes Magazine[9][10], Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine[11][12][13].

St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis, Missouri

St. Louis is the gateway to the west. The city was founded in 1764 as a French colonial outpost on the Mississippi River and has since grown into one of America’s biggest metropolises, with over 2 million residents living in its urban area alone. In fact, St. Louis has been ranked as one of America’s most livable cities for several years running by various publications such as Forbes magazine and U.S News & World Report (USNWR). Its central location makes it easy to access by car or train from other major metropolitan areas such as Chicago or Kansas City–and if you’re flying into Lambert International Airport (which serves both STL), you’ll be greeted by our famous Gateway Arch!

The 1904 World’s Fair brought worldwide attention to our fair city when it opened at Forest Park–you can still visit some remains today like Ferris Wheel Avenue where many of these old rides are located near each other along a path lined with trees whose leaves change colors during fall months depending upon temperature fluctuations throughout year; however most remain green year round thanks “spring buds” placed strategically throughout park grounds so tourists feel like they’re walking through lush forest rather than urban sprawl which surrounds them everywhere else.”

Daytona Beach, Florida

Daytona Beach, Florida

Home of the Daytona 500 and host to a number of festivals throughout the year, this city is known for its unique culture and events. The Daytona Beach Bandshell hosts many musical acts throughout the year including country music singer Taylor Swift and pop star Justin Bieber.

San Diego, California

San Diego is a great city to visit. The weather is great, food is delicious and there are plenty of things to do.

If you’re looking for a fun festival in San Diego, there’s always something going on! From the San Diego County Fair in Del Mar to Taste of Gaslamp and San Diego Music Awards Showcase at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay (which was recently named one of America’s best outdoor concert venues by USA Today), there’s something happening every month!

Galveston Island, Texas

Galveston is a great place to visit if you’re looking for festivals and events. The island has been home to many cultural events over the years, including the world’s largest Mardi Gras parade and celebration. It’s also known for its seafood, so don’t forget your appetite when visiting!

The Texas State Aquarium is located on Galveston Island and features marine life from around the world–including sharks, stingrays and piranhas (don’t worry–they’re behind glass). You can also experience an adventure with dolphins at Sea Life Park or explore one of several museums like Moody Gardens or Big Kahuna’s Waterpark & Beach Club while staying here as well!

Cincinnati, Ohio

Cincinnati is a city that loves music, and it has a festival for every genre. There are plenty of opportunities to catch some live tunes during the year. The Cincinnati Music Festival is one of the largest festivals in the country, with more than 200 acts performing on multiple stages over two days (and it’s free!).

The Cincinnati Jazz & Blues Festival takes place in September at Paul Brown Stadium, where you can listen to some great jazz and blues acts while enjoying food from some of Cincinnati’s best restaurants or sampling local beers at one of their beer gardens.

The May Festival was established in 1880 by composer Carl Stoeckel as an annual celebration of springtime through music performances and parades down Main Street Uptown. Today it features performances by renowned performers from around the world including opera singers, symphony orchestras and ballet dancers who perform along Fifth Street between Walnut Street & Elm Street during this three-day event which starts on Friday evening before moving indoors for Saturday & Sunday matinees at Music Hall – Aronoff Center For The Arts located at 650 Walnut Street Cincinnati OH 45202

New Orleans, Louisiana.

New Orleans is known for its festivals and celebrations. In fact, the city has more than 100 festivals each year! Here are some of the most popular ones:

  • The New Orleans Jazz Fest takes place every spring in the Fair Grounds Race Course and lasts for three days. It’s one of the largest music events in North America with over 400 acts performing on 13 stages throughout the weekend. You’ll hear everything from blues to funk to hip-hop at this festival, which attracts more than 500,000 visitors each year.
  • For oyster enthusiasts, check out The New Orleans Oyster Festival that happens every October at City Park Stadium (a sports stadium located right next door). Here you can sample different types of raw oysters while listening live music performances by local musicians throughout the day or watch demonstrations by chefs who will show off their skills making gumbo or jambalaya dishes using Louisiana seafood ingredients like crawfish tails or shrimp heads (yes!).
  • Another annual tradition here is The Crawfish Festival held each May since 1980 at Riverside Park along Mississippi Riverfront area downtown where crowds gather together around tables set up under tents filled with thousands pounds worth fresh crawfish caught locally just hours before being steamed hot over open coals inside large pots placed outside where everyone waits anxiously until finally ready eat them fresh from shell – nothing better!

They’re also a great place to meet people who love what you love and want to share their passion with you, whether it’s music, food or culture.

Conclusion

With so many festivals to choose from, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. I suggest starting with one of these five cities and seeing what kind of experience they offer. If you want something more adventurous or off the beaten path then maybe New Orleans or Galveston Island would be better options for your next trip!
