Liverpool is a very popular tourist destination, especially for fans of Everton and Liverpool F.C., the two major football clubs of Liverpool. But, it is also great if you want to see a couple of festivals. Being a thriving city as it is, Liverpool offers tourists festivals throughout the entire year. Besides being a favorite for some football fans, it is also a great place to have fun or meet people with similar ideas. It is also a great place to experience different cultures and art, in general.
Here are the best festivals in Liverpool which you could visit almost every year.
The Liverpool Comic Con
If you want to catch some of your favorite movie or TV show stars, this might be the place for it, especially if they like sci-fi and fantasy. It is also a great place to meet fellow sci-fi and fantasy lovers, exchange ideas and see some really amazing cosplays. Held at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre, right by the Mersey river, there is no shortage of space for your favorite characters to appear in all sizes. For 2019, the festival already took place in March, but you can also look forward to it in 2020.
St. Patrick’s Day
This is another festival which already took place, as St. Patrick’s Day is in March. But, it is also a festival worth revisiting in the years to come. What makes it amazing is that you get to spend 4 days listening to live music and drinking and partying with other fellow Irish-folk, or rather, folk who enjoy this often-dubbed, Irish holiday. It is actually a saint feast day, celebrated in Ireland as far back as the ninth century. It was made an official feast day in the 17th century, however, quite a bit later.
The Threshold Festival
This is a music festival which prides itself in the fact that Liverpool has quite a creative culture. The festival is around 9 years old, the 2019 one marking 9 years of its existence. It took place in March. However, looking at 2020, the festival is once more going to give emerging artists the chance to hop onto bigger stages and present their art to quite a large crowd. Often four days in length, the festival is quite the attraction.
Bordeaux Wine Festival
This is something for people who love a slower evening or afternoon, with tasty treats, or in this case, amazing wines. Held at the historic Waterfront, it is the perfect festival to visit if you want to taste multiple wines. It is a great event for wine connoisseurs and everyone who loves wine.
These are some of the most interesting festivals you can visit while in Liverpool. There are plenty more to choose from, depending on the time of year.
