A festival landscape is a landscape of cultural festivities. Festival landscapes are designed in urban planning to be a site for concerts and festivals as well as focal points for informal human interactions.

Examples of festival landscapes include the Inner Harbor in Baltimore, the Skydome in Toronto and the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta. Central Park in New York City is another example of a festival landscape. Other examples of such landscapes include Bayside in Miami, Riverwalk in San Antonio and Faneuil Hall in Boston. The term is one of the keywords for the Advanced Placement Human Geography course and exam.
