esoteric festivals

I am beginning a study on esoteric festivals across the US including
the photographing of the declared "king" and "queen" of such fesivals.
An example of a festival that I would like to visit is "Melon Days" in
Green River, Utah which appoints a Melon Queen. Does anyone know of any
studies that might already have been done?
Alternatively, can you share some of the festivals that you might be aware
of in your part of the country? I'll need the name and city. As I
stated, I'm particularly interested in those festivals that appoint a "king"
or "queen".
