What's the difference between Cons and japan's festival?

Hi guys, first things first. this is my first post so don't bash me harshly okay :p ?

umm.. I am from indonesia and never experienced cons out there. beside, at my place there is NO ONE an event that make like a convention that i know from the forum i know... but, we have a countless japan's festival that are held every month.

yeah... every month, who drain the energy of my friends and mine of course.

So, i would like to ask this:

What is the big difference between anime/game conventions and japan's festivals? i am willing to know that and i'll appreciate your feedback. since i just know that cons out there from countless forum i know :p

...and if you are one of the volunteers in past convention, please give your thought xD

Forgive me for my bad english... DUH Dx

Festivals are primarilly used to celebrate something. Like the Cherry Blossom Festival or Summer Festivals.

Conventions are used as a gathering of people who share the same interests such as anime, cars, technology. Ususally you get the people together have events, discussions, and what not.

@naota : but at my place. the the festival always be held with another interest. so i can't tell how exact it was a convention one like you told or it was a celebration of an event like cherry blossom festive or another example.

but, at my place, we are rarelly don't have any convention event. its just a toys fair ( not a comic) who used as event for gathering people.

@maria: in my place, that's the opposite. i don't know who or how it will end like that. sometimes when it was a festival, people going to wear any japanese cosplay chara (well, there is some yukata also) but, it doesn't suits with the event though.. am i right?
