    Si quiero decir que durante las fiestas de mi pueblo, hay un campeonato de surf, puedo decir que "during my village festivals (or festivities), there is a surf championship (or a surfing championship"?

    durante las fiestas de mi pueblo, hay un campeonato de surf

    I would say, "During our village festival, there is a surfing championship"

    "during my village festival" sounds like it's your personal village festival (no one else allowed).
    "during the festival of my village" doesn't sound natural.

    That leaves two options that I can think of:
    During my village's festival (I don't like this one so much)
    or
    During our village festival
