** In ''VideoGame/{{Persona 3}}'', nearly a whole week (in game time) is spent setting up the plot for the Culture Festival... which is then rained out by one of the largest typhoons in years. This was a disappointment for [[MostGamersAreMale a small segment of the fanbase]], who ''[[{{Fanservice}} really]]'' [[{{Fanservice}} wanted to see Yukari in that]] [[{{Meido}} maid costume]].[[note]] You ''can!'' see her. Check the security camera in the briefing room... [[/note]] Several [=NPCs=] also moan their great disappointment out loud, and the Main Character is asked if he's disappointed for the same reason.
** ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' had a festival as well. It doesn't last long and all it really does is give you brownie points with some of your social link friends. As a side note: Don't mention "Group Date Cafe" to any of them. Or either of the Beauty Contests (The Guys had to crossdress, and the girls had to wear swimsuits in school).

It doesn't last long Since the game is set in a sleepy rural town, the festival is fairly short and mundane, and all it really does is give you brownie points with some of your social link friends. As a side note: Don't mention "Group Date Cafe" or "Beauty Contest" to any of them. Or either of the Beauty Contests (The Guys your party members (the guys had to crossdress, cross-dress and the girls had to wear swimsuits in front of the whole school).

** ''VideoGame/Persona5'' has a big festival, but most of your team is tense throughout, since the school is under major scrutiny and nobody wants to slip and accidentally out themselves as the infamous Phantom Thieves; in fact, one of the headline events is detective Goro Akechi giving a talk [[spoiler:and revealing that he knows what your team's been up to, though he keeps your names secret]]. That said, there are still a couple lighthearted moments as well, namely going to a takoyaki cafe where the only item still available is a "Russian Takoyaki" with one of the takoyakis being colored bright red, and saving a teammate from having to answer a potentially incriminating question onstage by yelling something embarrassing in front of the entire student body like "I've always loved you!" or "Blonde hair is dumb!"

* ''Manga/ShokugekiNoSoma'' has an entire arc devoted to Tootsuki Culinary Academy's school festival. The manga being what it is, the festival is a week-long culinary bonanza with over half a million attendants. The students run everything from hot-dog carts to fine dining restaurants out of school facilities and compare sales figures every night to try to figure out who is the best. Failing to turn a profit is grounds for expulsion.

* The infamous ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' episode known as "Shadow Dance" is centered about one of these, but mostly on the school ball that is supposed to be the cherry on top.

** ''VideoGame/PersonaQ'' makes things up for the ''Persona 3'' cast by bringing them, alongside the ''Persona 4'' cast, into an alternate dimension which consists entirely of a school festival. Except they're trapped in the seemingly unending festival, and some of the attractions are labyrinths filled with deadly Shadows.

* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex''
** This gets a twist due to the [[PsychicPowers espers]]. Powers ''are'' allowed in competitions, which means the lesser schools are inevitably completely shown up by the better ones, even with a handicap. Though Touma's class of Level Zeroes does surprisingly well, and not because of his AntiMagic hand. It's because [[BerserkButton someone made their teacher cry]].
** The ''[[Manga/ACertainScientificRailgun Railgun]]'' side of the arc involves a plot to kidnap Mikoto Misaka that accidentally grabs one of her clones instead, a mind-controller [[LaserGuidedAmnesia erasing all memories of Mikoto from her closest friends]], the swim team girls being badass, two Level 5 espers teaming up against a Kihara, plus a few flashbacks to [[spoiler:said mind-controller's heartwarming interactions with Mikoto's very first clone]]. Oh, and the overly-confident Tokiwadai girls get curb-stomped by a school of low-level espers who were very cautious and well-prepared.
** Separate from the sports festival, there is also a city-wide festival where schools compete to attract new students, and Tokiwadai puts on a rather more organized than typical one to show off the non-esper portion of their curriculum.



* ''Manga/AliceAcademy'' had a festival episode where Mikan's Special Abilities class had an Arabian themed maze game.The entering people had to go through stages in order to win, such as to not laugh at a boy who has an Alice that makes everything funny. Also a particularly humorous scene in which Natsume faked an injury to trick Mikan,which worked. It also had a major plot point where Ruka's crush on Mikan is revealed at the ending dance as Natsume looks on peeved. But the person to dance with Mikan in the couple's dance ends up being Hotaru!

* ''Anime/CodeGeass'' liked it so much, they did it twice: the first season has the annual SchoolFestival as a whole episode, complete with a horror house and StudentCouncilPresident Milly's attempt at making the world's largest pizza. ''R2'' has one in honor of classmate/high-ranking noble Suzaku, who had just returned to the school. Both festivals have a good deal of HilarityEnsues and {{Fanservice}}, and their endings also make them major [[WhamEpisode Wham Episodes]] in their respective seasons.
