Millions of people attend at least one festival in the U.S. per year – and those numbers are on the rise.
With so many events to choose from (and ticket prices in the hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for some festivals), it can be hard to decide where to spend your time and money. That’s why 10Best teamed up with a panel of festival experts to nominate the top events across five categories.
We need you to help crown the best fests in the United States by voting for your favorites once per day until voting ends on Monday, March 20 at noon ET, and you can vote once per day, per category.
