Festivals

Below are some of the festivals celebrated in Birmingham by different cultural groups.

Do you take part in any of them? If so how?

Perhaps children could describe the festivals to other children who may not have experienced them. What makes them special? What does your school do to mark some of these occasions?

  • Vaisakhi (end of April)
  • Diwali (Autumn)
  • Holi (the arrival of spring in March)
  • Mela (July/August – celebrates diverse south Asian culture as part of Eid but has become a more secular)
  • St Patricks day parade (end of March)

Can you think of any others?
