Peru holds around 3,000 folk festivals every year, most
of them are dedicated to a patron saint, falling within the Christian
calendar imposed during the Vice royalty, after having been carefully
adapted to the magical and religious beliefs of a particular region.
Apart from these religious festivals, Peru hosts other
celebrations that are exclusively pagan, such as those linked to
time-honored myths in jungle native communities and the countless festivals
created over the past few centuries or decades.

from 4,000 regional clubs hold urban versions of the same festivals that
they celebrate in their home towns.
