ICH and City Festivals

Cities that have experienced growth since the Industrial Revolution have inherited traditional festivals and created new festivals reflecting the new urban cultures.
City festivals help build a sense of belonging to a community, which reinforces group cohesiveness and attracts tourist. In this volume, we examine city festivals in Kyrgyzstan, New Zealand, Singapore, and Thailand to better understand the relationship among the festivals, the communities, and the cities.
