Fiestas de Santa Fe are pretty amazing, but a lot of Spanish-rooted cities have Fiesta. So I'll go with a quirkier event . . .

Default Kurentovanje

Kurentovanje, a Slovenian winter festival in Cleveland, featuring Kurent monsters.

Cleveland Kurentovanje winter festival luring visitors to St. Clair-Superior area with Slovenian food, drink and scary monsters | cleveland.com

One of Greater Cleveland's great events is a big draw for geneticists from around the world, and a time and place where singletons will feel overwhelmed.

Annually, Cleveland has an event which features its world-class orchestra, typically at the foot of the Terminal Tower, one of the world's most historic skyscrapers (the tallest in the world outside of NYC for two decades and featured in many movies, such as the 2012 "The Avengers"). Usually the event takes place before July 4th (the orchestra's musicians open the Blossom Music Festival at Blossom Music Center on July 4th weekend each year). Early attendees can stake out positions for free to hear one of the world's top orchestras from 50-feet, accompanied by a computerized LED-light show on the Terminal Tower.

The Burning River Fest is a Cleveland eco-festival that commemorates the famed day in 1969 when the Cuyahoga River caught on fire, helping inspire the federal Clean River Act.

Does anyone else celebrate the summer solstice? I would think this would be common, but it's become a big social event in Cleveland in a very short number of years.

http://www.clevelandart.org/about/pr...-solstice-2015

Dyngus Day is another new celebration rapidly growing in popularity in Cleveland.

I know Dyngus Day is celebrated in Chicago and Buffalo, but anywhere else?

Do other cities have an Ingenuity Festival?

Cleveland's University Circle is one of the nation's great cultural districts and is the focus of several great festivals.

Here in Seattle we celebrate the summer solstice with the Fremont Solstice Fair, known for its kooky parade featuring naked, body-painted bicyclists and arts-&-craftsy "floats" celebrating whatever art or message the group chooses to promote (only rule: no motorized floats allowed). Fremont Solstice Fair ? June 19-21, 2015

Folsom Street Fair is an anual bondage/domination/sadomasochism festival with live sex acts and humiliation, spanking, nudity, etc. out on the street that is mostly gay/leather in its focus.

Up Your Alley is a similar, smaller, but dirtier and gayer version of Folsom.

The How Weird Street Fair is more of a costume/art/music festival on Howard St.

Bay to Breakers is a costumed (and sometimes nude) fun run across San Francisco, with multiple parties and bar stops along the way. The seven mile "run" takes 10-12 hours for some to finish.

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is a totally free music festival in the park that gets an interesting mix of acts and audiences.

SantaCon, our most reviled holiday export, started here but has spread worldwide. Apologies for that one.

Neil Young does his anual Bridge School Benefit festival here, which is really more like a family jam session. It is intimate like no music festival you've ever seen, despite showcasing some of the biggest names in rock.

Burning Man is a San Francisco invention, even though it now happens well east of here I the desert.

There are, of course, also countless street/neighborhood/ethnic events throughout the summer months that attract tens of thousands of people. They're unique because the neighborhoods they celebrate have uniquely San Francisco characteristics, but there are several analogues in other cities.
