Around 3,000 folk festivals are carried out in Peru every year. Most of them are dedicated to a patron saint within the Christian calendar imposed during the Spanish Vice-regency.
The celebrations go hand-in-hand with a busy program of activities that include mass, processions, pilgrimages, dancing, folk dances, arts and crafts shows, agricultural fairs and other shows that blend spirituality and vitality.
