The different stages of a festival's evolution provide a plethora of opportunities for us to better understand our culture, the relationships we build, what we value in our culture and our communities, and how we socialize and interact with one another. Managing and Developing Community Festivals and Events brings together community festival and event research from nine different countries. It critically explores how festivals and their communities develop and impact upon one another. The chapters focus on a wide range of festivals such as food and culinary festivals, art events, religious pilgrimage and feast festivals, as well as a variety of diverse themes such as joy, civil unrest, preservation of cultures and authenticity.

His research with Alan Clarke explores power, hegemony and decision making processes that produce community cultural events, community engagement within the planning process, and the impact that festivals and events have upon overall quality of life.

Alan Clarke is a Docens in the Faculty of Business and Economics at University of Pannonia, Hungary.

He chaired the Derby Tourism Challenge Team, was Vice-Chair of the Derbyshire Tourism Partnership and was the founding chair of the Derbyshire and Peak District Sustainable Partnership.

Review:

“This book gathers a great number of research articles by a large number of scholars to give the reader a wide range of information. The book is easy to read because each chapter stands by itself. Together, though, they provide a wide-ranging look at diverse aspects of festivals and events. Many useful data can be found here, and further research can be made from case studies presented in book.” (Dajana Lulic, Annals of Tourism Research, Issue 61, 2016)
