9 to 18 July: Calgary Stampede, Canada
They don't call Calgary the Stampede City for nothing! Each July, one million visitors flock to the Alberta city for a hugely impressive, no-expense-spared multi-day rodeo, complete with stage shows, parades, competitions, festivals and concerts.
Highlights include chuckwagon races and a funfair. Yep, there's also an abundance of fairground rides, with your usual waltzers, rollercoasters, Big Wheels and deliciously unhealthy fried doughnuts.
11 to 15 July: Naadam Festival, Mongolia
Drinking, gossiping and dancing aren't usually a core component of a sporting festival. But in Mongolia, the Naadam Festival or 'Manly Games' – testing the country's greatest wrestling, archery and horse racing champions – wouldn't be the same without a tipple or two.
Ulaanbataar, Mongolia's capital, is probably the biggest celebration, but across the country you'll find smaller versions of the same event. All are quite traditional, and the competitors will all be wearing traditional Mongolian dress. It's likely you'll attend with a guide, and visitors are welcomed by locals.
17 to 20 July: Boryeong Mud Festival, South Korea
Slipping, sliding, swimming, throwing, wearing, wrestling – whatever you like to do with your mud, you can do in Boryeong, South Korea, during the annual Mud Fest. (Be careful with the throwing, though.)
Going strong since 1999, there's no real backstory behind this one. It's just fun, and the parties surrounding the mud-based activities prove it. Better yet? Apparently, the mud in Boryeong is high in minerals, and can do wonders for plumping and brightening your skin. No wonder thousands from all over South Korea, Europe and the Americas flock to take part.
17 and 24 July: Gion Matsuri, Kyoto, Japan
Undeniably the biggest festival in Kyoto and Japan, Gion Matsuri is steeped in history. Gion Matsuri first began in the year 839 during a plague. Kyoto residents tried their best to appease their gods by offering up a child messenger.
These days, a young lad is chosen to sit on a decadent parade float (one of many), without his feet touching the ground, for four days before the first procession ends on 17 July. The second parade takes place on 24 July, but the whole month is filled with vibrancy, all-night parties and delicious street food.
Naturally, Gion is one of the busiest times to visit Kyoto, so to fully experience the city and the festival, you'll need to book your trip several months in advance – and possibly prepare for slightly higher hotel prices.
