New Orleans and Jazz: an indissoluble couple. We leave the worthy conclusion of the events of April to one of the most important Jazz festivals in the world. The New Orleans Jazz Festival is a world-class event for all fans of the genre. An event that celebrates not only music, but all the culture of New Orleans and Louisiana. It takes place every year between the last week of April and the first week of May. Really wonderful and unmissable. On the other hand, those who want to dance and go wild in Amsterdam, on the weekend between 15 and 17 there is the awaited DGTL, one of the April events not to be missed. And, while staying in the capital, on the 27th there will be great celebrations, parades and processions on the occasion of the King’s Day. During the Koningsdag, you can dance, drink, eat and have fun all day. In every place, street, square of the city. All strictly dressed in orange.

Best April Events and festivals

Big celebrations. History, folklore and tradition in the wonderful Seville, protagonist of the Holy Week. On the other hand, this is also the month of Easter. If you are planning to visit the beautiful Andalusian city, this is truly the best time.

About two hours by train from Barcelona, Montblanc’s Medieval Week is one of the best April events in Spain. The event takes place every year over the two weekends during which the feast of the patron saint falls on 23 April. The Setmana Medieval program is really rich. Among the unmissable events, the Representation of the legend of Saint George, and the splendid medieval market.

The Frühlingsfest, which takes place in Stuttgart from 21 April to mid-May, is quite different. It is one of the most loved holidays by the Germans. A sort of spring Oktoberfest, more genuine and less touristy. A festival where you can savor the excellent beers on offer, taste the culinary delicacies and have fun with all your children. In addition to the food stands, in fact, you will find rides, attractions, games, dances, songs and events dedicated to children. In our opinion, one of the best April events.

Among the best April events, the Beltane Fire Festival Edinburgh cannot be missed. It is a traditional event held every year in Calton Hill, in the Scottish town. The popular event is a modern revival of an ancient festival of Scottish and Irish Gaelic origin, held on April 30 to celebrate the arrival of summer. The ceremony takes place in the evening. During the celebrations it will be possible to see the undressed Celts raising luminous torches, in order to increase the fertility of the soil for humans and the animals that reside there.

Immense bonfires. Bonfires and witches. Demon-possessed people who praise Satan …
Between mysticism and paganism, a sort of Halloween to the extreme, celebrated in Saxony, and, in particular, in the Harz region. The Walpurgis Night is an extraordinary event that has its roots in the pre-Christian period, as a sort of middle ground between propitiatory rites and the celebrations of Spring.

Last but not least, in this precious list, one of the most incredible, and absurd, events of April 2022, Kanamara Matsuri. Literally, the festival of the Iron Penis, and will take place this year on 03/04. A unique occasion, in which you will see crowds of tourists and onlookers for the city of Kawasaki, literally invaded by fouls of all sizes, carried on their shoulders through the streets of the city. His majesty the penis, is revered in all forms: illustrations, candy, carved vegetables, decorations and, of course, a grand parade. Really amazing!
