20 Of The Strangest Festivals In The United States

Fish Sandwich Festival, Bay Port

If you like to celebrate food, this year marks the 38th annual Bay Port Fish Sandwich Festival in Michigan. From July 31st to August 2nd, you will find all day entertainment and lots of tasty fish sandwiches.

National Hollerin’ Contest

Every September, for one day, Spivey’s Corner, North Carolina, revives the art of hollerin’. While many people complain when someone hollers at them, in Spivey Corners they love it.

Underwater Music Festival

In the Looe Key coral reef in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary you will find the Underwater Music Festival. It’s held around mid-July and it is by far one of the most shocking and strangest festivals ever. A band plays copper instruments underwater and snorkelers dive in to check them out.

Humongous Fungus Fest

In Crystal Falls, Michigan you’ll find the world’s largest living fungus. It covers nearly 38 acres, but is mostly underground aside from some offshoots here and there. It is believed to be between 1,500 and 10,000 years old. It is celebrated each year in early August with its own festival.
