International music acts and endless dancing in the Californian desert. Celebrations of jazzy beats in Montreal. All this and more awaits those who put some thought into the timing of their trip to the USA & Canada, arriving for something extra special and festive. From Christmas to Coachella, beer events to Burning Man, this part of the world offers a calendar of inspiration to tap into. In Canada, the rodeo of Calgary Stampede attracts 1.2 million to the state of Alberta for what they declare ‘the greatest outdoor show on Earth,’ while the World Ski and Snowboard Festival gives travellers just another reason to make the trek to Whistler. If it’s a Canadian film festival you’re after a trip to Toronto should be booked towards the end of March. Further south amidst the many states and territories of the USA, a banquet of culture is offered by American festivals. For over 30 years, South by Southwest festival has been attracting forward thinkers to Texas for a banquet of film, interactive media, ideas and music, while Burning Man has grown into a radical display of free-thinking alternative culture. Then, of course, there is the diverse scope of events offered by the ever-outlandish state of New York.
Team your trip with the Tribeca Film Festival, The Bloody Mary Festival or the Coney Island Mermaid Parade and you are in for a travel treat. Needless to say Christmas in America will take your experience with this country from amazing to absolutely astounding. Blanketed in snow and shrouded in traditions, a white Christmas wonderland awaits in ‘the states’. Meanwhile, Christmas in Canada gets even frostier, offering the genuine Christmas scene of its North Pole like setting. Here you can watch Santa Claus parades in most of the big cities, and ice-skate on Lake Louise to the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.
