If you had a year to travel to the world's most renowned festivals, where would you go? Oktoberfest in Munich, Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Mardi Gras in New Orleans... help me make a list of the biggest parties in the world.

Looking for large-scale events that are held annually that are embedded in the local culture. Events the population collectively looks forward to and people travel to see (or would if they knew)
I'm not especially going for obscurity so feel free to chime in on the big ones. If you've been: What were your experiences like? Would you do it again?
Also feel free to weigh in on less well-known but still regionally celebrated festivals where you've had a great time.
