Festivalscape.com is a website dedicated to festivals and holidays.

It is made from portmanteaus of the words “festival” and “escape” (which suggests leisure, a break) or “landscape” or “townscape” or “cityscape”, for these celebrations are deeply rooted in time and place and people.

Festivals and holidays can be fun and joyous. They can also be solemn and dignified. But they are more than just the activities and events that stretch for days or weeks and when people need not go to work or school; without a doubt, they celebrate our way of life.

So this website unpacks what these celebrations are, how they began, why they are held. Our goal is to fill the gaps in our cultural knowledge through articles written with less fluff, puff, and frills. The hope is that getting to know them a little bit more will make your experience fuller and richer.

Also included are the holidays that go with the celebrations. Some holidays are fixed in the calendar while others are moveable. In a lot of instances, there are laws and official announcements that declare days to be holidays in certain places when people need not report to work or attend school.

Are the festival events and activities accurate?

Each of the festivals or holidays contain a brief summary of activities, events, schedule, calendar, etc. These activities are based on past celebrations. While there are a number of festivals that have fairly consistent schedule (such as the nine-day novena and mass in a Roman Catholic religious fiesta of a patron saint to name an example), activities mentioned in the website may not always be complete, up to date, recurring, or being consistently observed. Most importantly, they do not predict future activities.

They are mentioned along with important bits of information with the sole purpose of offering a glimpse what the festival has to offer.

It is best to reach out to festival organizers for the most complete and up-to-date calendar of activities.


Lastly, help us keep the website relevant.
