There are several festivals and events in Budapest and around the country all through the summer. The activities on offer at open-air or tourism festivals include popular music, classical music, jazz, fine arts and gastronomy. And plan your summer by Lake Balaton so that you can take part in the VeszprémFest.




Most of the events of the Jewish Cultural Festival are held in the wonderful Dohány utca Synagogue in Budapest.


The Budapest Spring Festival is the largest cultural festival of Hungary, focusing on classical music, opera, jazz, dance, theatre and fine arts.


The Gourmet Festival – which is all about gastronomy – is held in May in Millenáris Park, while the Sziget Festival lasts a whole week in August on Óbuda Island, with international stars headlining.


If you visit the Budavár Wine Festival, you will have a chance to taste thousands of wines from hundreds of winemakers while admiring the most breathtaking view of Budapest.


The town of Veszprém organises a series of events that attracts legendary performers, and while you are so close to Lake Balaton, you should try and catch the Blue Ribbon yacht race, where competitors take a tour around the lake. The starting point of the Blue Ribbon yacht race is actually the port of Balatonfüred.
