Upcoming European Holidays and Festivals

Bled Castle, Slovenia
Traditional costumes bring color to many of Europe’s festivals.

With so many cultures to show off — and so many centuries of practice — Europe is a pro at partying. The normal can-can of carnivals, medieval fairs, music fests, and national holidays could light a fire under the most burned-out sightseer.

Remember that event dates can change (and many are likely to be canceled altogether this spring), so be sure to verify dates on each festival's website or with a local tourist information office.
