Festivals and Events in Istanbul

Istanbul’s festival calendar is packed with events. A city with multiple cultural identities, spectacular natural setting and a vibrant populous to revel alongside — you couldn’t ask for a better place to celebrate!

Here are some of the top festivals in Istanbul worth including in your tour’s itinerary.

Started in 2006, the tulip festival Istanbul is now part of the city’s cultural fabric, just as the flowers were during the Ottoman era. Through this exquisite floral display, the city honours its past and present. And tourists can partake to their hearts’ content, for absolutely free. Over 150 varieties and 30 million flowers are planted during tulip festival Istanbul, right in the heart of spring.

For the best sights and some fun activities, visit the gorgeous Emirgan Park by the Bosphorus or Sultanahmet Square.

You know how popular the Dubai and Singapore shopping festivals are, but did you know this ranks next in the list? Many tourists flock to the city in July for some much-awaited retail therapy and you’re invited too. And while you may come for the discounts and bargain deals, there are also concerts, contests and workshops to keep you entertained.

The shopping festival happens across all the major malls of Istanbul as well as the famed Grand Bazaar. Booking early is important!
