* ''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.

** The [[NonIndicativeFirstEpisode first episode]] shows the video the [=SOS-Dan=] created for the SchoolFestival, which is shown in episode 12. Yuki's class does fortune-telling (with Yuki being amusingly exact), and Mikuru's class did a yakisoba cafe, while Kyon and Haruhi's class "copped out and did a survey" and Itsuki's class performed a play (''RosencrantzAndGuildensternAreDead'').

* All of Ai Yazawa's long series set in a High School involve one. In ''Manga/TenshiNankaJaNai'', since the main characters are in the student council, they have to organize it themselves. In ''Manga/GokinjoMonogatari'' and ''ParadiseKiss'', it's an excuse for the aspiring fashion designer protagonists to create a PimpedOutDress.
