Vardavar Festival

View More Journeys

Visit Armenia in July and participate in the funniest and definitely the wettest summer festival of the country! Vardavar, meaning `to pour water over someone` is also known as the Holiday of Water and is all about splashing water on each other. The festival originates from an ancient Armenian legend and celebrates Astghik, the goddess of water, beauty, love and fertility. A great adventure awaits as you explore the water cannon-filled streets of Yerevan with a bucket in your hands, splashing your fellow travellers or unknown `victims` with water. No chance you`re going home in dry clothes!

For further information please contact our Travel Advisors on timings of this festival in your desired year of travel.
