I have been putting this off for as long as I could. I just didn’t want anything Corona related on my blog. However, I realized that this is something that we are all facing and I’m in a better space to actually talk about it now. A few weeks ago, I was in a rut and just couldn’t make sense of any of this. Everyday, I caught myself in a “I can’t believe this is real life” game. I sympathize with the people this is affecting the most.

They are trying to build their clientele and showcase their excellent products and these festivals were designed just for that. However, with so many festivals and as more people become interested in attending, I figured it was time for a festival guide. How else are you gonna know how to navigate these experiences and truly enjoy everything they have to offer?
