Festivals in Belize

Hello everyone,

What are the main festivals in Belize? Are there art, food, music, film, or other festivals expats can attend and participate in?

When do the festivals take place? How long does each festival usually last?

What activities go on during the festival? Is it necessary to buy tickets?

Are there any other events that take place in Belize that shouldn't be missed?

Thank you for sharing your experience.


I love the festivals here! Chocolate Fest (in PG) and Lobster Fest (I've been in Placencia) are both fabulous. I haven't been to Mango Fest, but I've heard it's also wonderful. September is full of festivities all over for Independence and Baron Bliss. And Christmas isn't a festival, but it's a huge party, as is Easter!
