Myanmar is a Land of Festival ; in every month there is a festival. Most of the Myanmar festivals are cultural and religious in nature, reflecting the country's deep spirituality as well as important social events. Many festivals are related to pagoda festivals that people from the surrounding towns and villages come. Pagoda festivals are meant to commemorate the religious consecration rituals which are observed by the monks and make it into a holy and revered place of worship. During the pagoda festivals, there are local entertainment groups performing for the visitors, foodstalls, other shops selling various products, etc.

As most festivals are held during the fair weather ; i.e. after the rains when the harvest has been done by the villagers and they are free from their daily fieldwork. During the festivals, they meet old friends, engage in commerce, boys meet girls and generally the people enjoy themselves. There are also other festivals by many ethnic groups inhabiting the country connected with either the new year or harvest according to their own calenders. Apart from these festivals there are also many festivals connected with the other religions and Nats or the spirits.
