Small town festivals spark community spirit as people physically come together to participate in common activities. The lightheartedness plays an important role, creating an environment where men, women and children all find something to enjoy. In contrast, an important aspect of these events is how the town is symbolized as the focus of the event. Often, beneath the fun is a layer of serious commemoration either for special citizens, important local historical sites or occurrences.
Similar to national holidays, small-town festivals provide opportunities to define and redefine the community. Additionally, festivals also serve as excellent opportunities for new residents to get acclimated and meet lots of neighbors, while increasing the interest of visitors from out of town that may soon become residents. In essence, locals and out of towners alike are typically treated to an authentic, high-quality experience that they will remember for a long time.
And just what makes a festival attractive or memorable? Here’s a list of some of the things that we’ve found:
- Beautiful or intriguing surroundings
- Fun things to do outdoors
- Places to get to know local history and culture
- Chances to see and interact with local art and artists
- Local businesses and retail stores where visitors can shop or be pampered
