Festival Hoping

Living in vancouver, the city has a LOT of cultural festivals. I find them a great excuse for a long distance ride.
I live in the burbs and the festivals are always downtown so I get a nice long ride, followed by pigging out on whatever ethnic food is being sold, and sampling the beers they also serve. Last year I hit a double digits worth of festivals.

This weekend is the Celtic Fest

Anyone else cycle to all your cities events? or does your city even have events?

I have a similiar thing here. The area has frequent wine festivals for $5 to $50 dollars. Either I already have one of the needed souvenier wine glasses (in which case I can taste the wine) or I pay a minimal fee for a wristband indicating that I am a designated drive. No wine of course just lots of free food. It is like a century ride with tri-tip and snacks every mile or so. Sometimes my non-riding wife follows me with her car and carries home the bottles of wine we decide to buy. The best food is at the Sunce Winery on Olivet just south of Piner.
