What time of year is that festival?
Explanation:
How do you celebrate it?

Which festival do you like least?

I prefer "festival" to party. Party is too intimate and personal in English. The Spanish "Fiesta" is almost by its nature a more public event and your original seems to imply that the "celebration" (an alternative to "festival" BTW) is definitely public.

Explanation:
in what season is that holiday celebrated?

how do you celebrate that holiday?

which holiday do you like the least?

It couldnt be "party" because you would not be asking how it was celebrated

Good Luck

holiday


Explanation:
Luz Stella is right -- it's "holiday."
"Party" is just a normal party.
"Festival" is more like a street fair or a theme event like a "Renaissance Fair," which are held at one location.
This seems to refer to national or religious holidays.
