April is a month of joyous celebrations, including music festivals, spiritual observance, Easter, Ramadan, and many other april festivals that celebrate the seasonal transition. Surprisingly, the month witnesses such remarkable seasonal changes governed by nature when a scorching summer takes precedence over Spring.

The wonderful thing about April is that it hosts a plethora of thrilling festivals all over the world in just one month. Aside from the traditional celebrations, April will not pass up the chance to surprise you with a few lesser-known spectacular April events.

I bet you hardly had any idea about such happenings. That is why we have compiled a list of the most exciting festivals of April that you should keep an eye on.

Songkran Festival of Thailand:Festivals of April

Do you remember how you used to play with water as a kid during the summer? If you dig deeper into your memory, you will discover that your youth was filled with such activities. Songkran water festival is one of the best-known festivals of April where you get the opportunity to relive your childhood. It celebrates the start of the classical Thai New Year, a significant occasion on the Buddhist calendar. According to Thai belief, water purifies one’s thoughts, eliminates negativity and misfortune from the previous year, and bestows wealth and happiness for the coming year.

People nowadays take a more modern approach to it. Large amounts of water are stored in containers before being poured into spray guns, buckets, and water balloons to saturate your loved ones. Sounds like a plan! Then, grab your bag pack without wasting time and plan for a summer vacation.

Coachella, USA:April celebrations around the world

The power of music to change one’s mood is undeniable. Even when we don’t understand the lyrics, we are often moved by the music.

Coachella Valley, Music and Arts Festival is one of those April festivals that drive you to dissolve and immerse yourself entirely in the world of music. This music festival aims to bring artists from all over the world together. Since music unifies people and has no language, limiting it to a particular genre is impossible. This is why this music festival promotes a wide range of genres such as rock, pop, hip-hop, indie, and electronic dance music.

Cherry Blossom Festival:April month festivals

The word Spring often takes us to the land of imagination. It is regarded as the season of love, joy, and blossoming flowers.

Cherry Blossom Festival is one of the famous April festivals around the world, symbolising the sweet Spring. Originally in Japan, cherry blossom celebrations have been practised for decades by making a trip to a cherry blossom tree. People gather with their family and friends for a picnic beneath the tree and enjoy the event.

Series of new Year celebrations in India:April festivals

“Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilisation.” Mahatma Gandhi

India is known for its diverse culture and unity within diversity. The New Year’s celebrations in India are also diverse; each region has its own style, customs, and reasons for celebrating. When Punjab celebrates ‘Baisakhi’, Assam celebrates ‘Bihu’. Whereas Bengal celebrates ‘Pohela Boishakh’, Gujarat celebrates ‘Varsha Pratipada’, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana celebrate ‘Ugadi’. Sikkim celebrates ‘Namsoong’, and Manipur celebrates Cheiraoba. These are some of the different names for the Indian New Year, which is generally celebrated around the time of harvesting crops.

Are you someone who embraces Indian culture? If your answer is yes, you should travel to India during the second week of April to enjoy the series of festivals.

Eating ‘Tompouce’, a native pastry, has also been their custom. The good news is that this year’s festival will be conducted from April 26 to April 29. Since time is flying by, you’ll need to be quick if you want to attend the festival and avoid missing out on your desired event.
