Escargot festivals can be found all around the world, and they are a very delicious experience, especially for snail lovers! They mainly focus on promoting escargots as a culinary delight and selling other snail products. It is a place for escargot entrepreneurs to spread the word about their business and bring back the reputation and popularity escargots once enjoyed. It is also a great way of attracting visitors and tourists to the area. We wanted to create a list of the most popular snail festivals around the world so that you can find the nearest festival and make the trip!
There are places to eat escargot other the Paris and London.
