A festival or fest is an event, usually staged by a local community, which centers on some theme, sometimes on some unique aspect of the community. "Cherry Days" in Paonia, Colorado is a typical festival. The word fest derives from the German language (see list of German expressions in English). In religion, a festival is also a set of celebrations in honour of God or gods.
