Or is the local village festival coming up again soon during the Christmas period and are you thinking about doing something for the occasion on your own?

For inspiration: well-known village festivals
In many places, village festivals take place every year, and these are often whole happenings for those villages. Parties and celebrations take place all over the world, from the Netherlands to Sydney and from Stockholm to Cape Town. Since you are thinking about booking a village festival, we have listed some of these village festivals below for inspiration.
Fête de la Saint-Louis (Sète, France)
The French port town of Sète has been celebrating the now famous Fête de la Saint-Louis since 1666. Also known as the Venice of the Languedoc region, the village festival of this town consists of parades, pop-up bars and concerts. The absolute highlight for the locals, however, are the jousts in the water where two men on the sterns of two different boats try to get each other into the water with a lance. They are helped by a whole team, making it a huge spectacle.
Sagra dell'Uva (Quartu Sant'Elena, Sardinia, Italy)
The Sagra dell'Uva is actually just one part of a 10-day-long village festival that has been held annually since the year 1787 on the Italian island of Sardinia. The Sagra dell'Uva is the harvest of the grapes at the end of the summer. On the middle Saturday of September, members of the island's wine-producing families dress up to celebrate the new grape harvest. A whole procession of beautifully decorated carts is organized, covering a route of about two hours, around the village of Quartu Sant'Elena. All this is accompanied by a motley collection of buskers, people walking around with trays of fresh grapes, and people handing out cake and other treats.
Festas do Pereiro (Ribatejo province, Portugal)
In the village of Pereiro, about 200 kilometers northeast of Lisbon, the Festas do Pereiro, or the Festivities of Pereiro, takes place every year. For this occasion, the narrow streets of the village are decorated from head to toe with paper flowers. In this way, the local population pays tribute to the patron saint of the village, as happens in so many places in Portugal in summer. In terms of activities, the procession of Nossa Senhora da Saude through the rosemary-covered streets of the village is well worth a visit, while music by local artists, beer, and bifanas (a kind of sandwich with meat) are also part of it.
The celebration of Ascension (Alonissos, Sporades, Greece)
Alonissos is the capital of this Greek archipelago where Ascension Day is quite a happening. It starts with a morning mass in honour of the Virgin Mary, but the real village festival doesn't start until the early evening, when a typical local wedding is re-enacted, complete with costumes, local snacks, and tsipouro, a brandy of fruit pulp. This village festival includes the visit of the best man at the groom's home in the company of a group of buskers, picking up the bride as a procession slowly but surely forms behind the musicians, and the traditional meal of lamb with goat sauce. After dinner, the festivities really begin, with live music, traditional dancing, and lots of wine, and generally continue until the early hours.
Festival dalmatinskih klapa Omis (Omis, Croatia)
The breathtakingly beautiful medieval village of Omis on the Adriatic coast in Croatia hosts the Omis Festival of Dalmatian Klapa Singing every year. Klapa is a very expressive, local way of singing acapella that consists of several parts. During the festival, which takes place in summer, different groups compete against each other to give a performance every few days in one of the squares of the village. Ultimately, a single winner will be chosen from these groups. During the entire folk festival, which can last for up to a month, live music can be heard all over the place, and it is more than lively with all the bars and restaurants in the village.
