Mongolia Festivals

There’s a wide range of Mongolia festivals taking place throughout the year. Some are a traditional part of the fabric of Mongolian life. Others are newer but still celebrate an aspect of Mongolian culture. Here is a brief guide to some of those festivals although new events are being added each year by local provincial governments and the Mongolian Tourism Association.

(For those looking for something a little different, we have listed some of Mongolia’s music festivals below.)
