Spanish term or phrase: Romería
No sé cómo traducir este término. He localizado varias opciones como "procession", "religious pilgrimage" o incluso "festival" pero no explican el concepto de esta palabra que es una peregrinación hasta un sitio religioso importante y la fiesta que se celebra posteriormente. ¿Se os ocurre alguna opción?

Dejo algunos ejemplos de los documentos que tengo que traducir.

"Capilla de Santa María: su romería se celebra el 8 de septiembre. "
"Capilla de San Paio: su romería se celebra el domingo de Pentecostés."
"Capilla de San Antonio: Es de propiedad privada y solo abre el primer domingo de septiembre para celebrar la romería."

¡Gracias!

English translation:festival
Explanation:
The true meaning is 'pilgrimage', but since the subject is tourism, festival would be more appropriate.

The first ref uses the word 8 times and the second 16 times.
It could also be called a religious festival.

neutral  AllegroTrans: This is a proper noun and it needs to be used here (explanatory translation can follow in brackets)

agree  Claire Ziamandanis: 'festival' is the best generic choice. If, as AllegroTrans suggests, you keep 'romería' as a proper noun, by explaining it once and then using 'romería' elsewhere you present the exotic throughout. Not a bad option.
