New Bedford has a summer fest? Who knew? I'll be on the Vineyard that weekend, maybe next summer.

If you like ethnic and folk music (broadly defined), New Bedford Summerfest is heaven. Find a way to go.

Also missing from the Globe's list are a number of other Gloucester festivals (most notably the Schooner Festival), several Newburyport events (such as Yankee Homecoming), Somerville's ArtBeat, Cambridge's River Festival, both the Boston and Cambridge Caribbean carnivals, the Kite Festival in Franklin Park, the Puerto Rican festivals in both the South End and Franklin Park, all of Boston's North End fests, the Bread & Roses Labor Day festival in Lawrence, the Pawtucket Arts Festival, anything at all in Provincetown...

I'm too lazy to link any of these right now, but maybe later in the week.

Cape Ann events, including the Gloucester Waterfront Festival, Seaport Festival, and Schooner Festival.

Yankee Homecoming, in Newburyport.

Cambridge River Festival

Somerville ArtBeat

St. Anthony's Feast, the biggest and last of the North End festivals

Fisherman's Feast, another big North End fest held in mid-August

there are three or four smaller North End fests before these two big ones.

Does Federal Hill have big saint's-day festivals like the North End?  If so, can you list some of them?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Not like the North End, no. There is the annual Columbus Day Festival, which runs for three days over that weekend. Atwells Ave. is shut down for the duration and there are vendors and rides and musicians and such. There are a couple other things here and there (like 2 or 3 a year), usually some sort of processional, not such a festival atmosphere like they have in Boston. We also have a restaurant night a couple times a year (there's a name for it, which is escaping me at the moment). You buy a button and get to visit all the restaurants sample food and drink.

There's probably more Spanish festivals on the South Side than anything else in the city.
