Europe is where the Old World meets the Western world. It’s the place of “backpacking” lore. In the time it would take a person to travel through the entire United States, one could cover the grounds of numerous European countries, each one unique. You can visit Stonehenge and Big Ben in the United Kingdom, and share a romantic kiss beneath the Eiffel Tower in Paris. And like the people, places and histories, festivals in Europe are unique. They celebrate the concoction of cultures, the great art that continues to bubble over each country’s border. From the Running of the Bulls at the Fiesta de San Fermín in Pamplona, Spain, to the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, European festivals keep old traditions from dissipating.
