please explain the difference between the following sentences.

I go to the festival every year.
I go to the festival each year.

and also does 'every' here modifies 'year' or 'festival'?. Please point out any punctuation mistakes also.

Hi, in general 'each' would signify that you go each year that something is held (though it may not be held every year, so you would be unable to use 'every').

If you are speaking about something that takes place every year, then in this context there is no significant difference. They both mean that you go annually. You could even emphasis the fact that you go annually by saying 'I go to the festival each and every year.'
Even though one of the terms is technically redundant it is a common way of adding emphasis.
