Abstract

This study examined the influence of festival experience on community quality of life. The study analyzed data of the Social Capital Community Survey 2006 by using Hierarchical Linear Model (HLM). Samples were ten communities and 4,592 individuals. To analyze relationships between individual level life domains (life satisfaction, financial satisfaction, and health) and community quality of life, HLM model separated effects of community features and life domains at individual level. Results showed that most life domains are significant and leisure experience such as festival participation rate also affects community quality of life.
