The (Catalan) Festival, The (Catalan) Fiesta

Dues opcions: Festival es la que m'agrada més. Fiesta es una paraula coneguda i molt utilitzada en anglés, però te un component molt espanyol i pot ser que no t'agradï. Salut i sort :)

Catalan festivals

I think a singular would be mistaken for a reference to a single festa. English is stricter about number.

"public holiday"/"holiday"/"festival"

I suggest Public holiday or holiday because many "festes" are for only one day and festival suggests a longer event.
