A place as unique as America calls for originality always, especially when it comes to the country’s celebrations and gatherings. From the sort of strange to the just plain bizarre, here are America’s most unusual festivals and events.

Lebowski Fest

It’s no secret that Americans love pop culture, and nowhere is that more apparent than at Lebowski Fest. The Coen brothers classic The Big Lebowski is the inspiration behind this Kentucky event, where The Dude lookalikes enjoy a film screening, unlimited bowling, a costume contest, and, of course, White Russians. The beloved Louisville fest will abide once more on July 20–21, 2018, marking its 17th installation.
