The Biggest International Events of 2020

If you needed an excuse to travel in 2020, here it is! This year is set to be full of amazing international festivals and events that you don’t want to miss.

Here is Jarvisen’s list of the top four international events that you can cross off your bucket list in 2020.



This nationwide water fight takes place in Thailand. Every year, for four days in April, people in Thailand fill the streets for a nearly week-long water fight and party. Songkran is all about cleansing, both body and soul. By instigating these friendly games, the people bring joy to themselves and others, all the while washing off the dirt and heat of the day.

If you really want to experience the holiday, the best place to spend this holiday is Khao Sand Road in Bangkok! 


Meadows in the Mountains

If a nationwide water fight isn’t up your alley, the Meadows in the Mountains festival is another amazing option. One of the most unique music festivals in the world, this celebration takes place in Bulgaria’s Rhodope Mountains, almost 850 meters above sea level!


With an alternative music line up that is sure to get your blood pumping, this festival has something for everyone! If alternative music isn’t your thing, you can also take folklore classes, participate in open mic sessions, and even listen in on some amazing storytelling. Last but not least, this festival is the best place to watch the sunrise!


La Tomatina

Your instincts are right if you read the name of this one and immediately thought of tomatoes! La Tomatina is a Spanish festival devoted to the celebration of a city-wide food fight! For one hour in Buñol, Spain, you can launch tomatoes in every part of the fight zones.

This unique festival takes place in August and will have you laughing--and maybe covered in tomato puree--by the end of it.

The 2020 Olympics

How could we write a list of international events in 2020 and not include the 2020 Summer Olympics?

This summer, the Olympics will be held in Tokyo, Japan, from July 24 to August 9! Not only is this a once in a lifetime opportunity to see some of the most talented athletes on the planet come together and compete, but the city of Tokyo has so much to offer in between events. If you haven’t purchased tickets yet, then hurry!
