5 Strangest International Festivals

Here are 5 totally weird festivals you've just got to visit. Feel free to add to the list.

1

The Testicle Festival: Clinton, Montana, USA.

The Testicle Festival: Clinton, Montana, USA.

If you’re into testicles in general, or the private parts of bovines in particular and fancy a brimming bowlful of bulls balls and penises, then Clinton, Montana is the place for you in August!

2

La Tomatina Festival: Bunol, Spain.

La Tomatina Festival: Bunol, Spain.

For any fan of Extreme Sploshing, this is a must! Simply get yourself off to Spain, join an intimate little gathering of 30,000 like-minded individuals in the town center, and pelt each other with 100,000 lbs of tomatoes.

3

Hadaki Matsuri (Naked Festival): Konomiya, Japan.

Hadaki Matsuri (Naked Festival): Konomiya, Japan.

Nothing says Japan quite like getting naked (well, down to a loin cloth) and hanging with the guys while throwing mud and water over your fellow revelers in order to purify your souls. Yeah, right.

5

Pourcailhade (The Festival of the Pig): Trie Sur Baise, France.

Pourcailhade (The Festival of the Pig): Trie Sur Baise, France.

A must-do for every competitive sausage eater, pig racer, or porcine impersonator. Held every August in France.

7

Ivrea Orange Festival: Ivrea, Italy.

Ivrea Orange Festival: Ivrea, Italy.

Kinda like the Tomatina Festival, but with oranges. And medieval costumes. And pain.
