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.
More over, on the same day of the celebration, migrants from 4,000 regional clubs hold urban versions of the same festivals that they celebrate in their home towns.
