'Budapest Fish Festival', Hero's Square, 2 - 4 March
This free event in downtown Budapest is basically an excuse to sell a bit of fresh fish, but there's more to it than that...

Beside the fact that eating fish has beneficial health effects, it also plays a part in important Hungarians feasts, such as the traditional Christmas menu of carp.

However locals need more encouragement to cook up a fish dish in this landlocked country, as relative consumption in Hungary is far below the European average; therefore this event aims to get visitors involved in eating more dishes, including international fish specialities.

Just as at the first Budapest Fish Festival in 2013, this year the event plans to be interactive, where both adults and young visitors alike can enjoy cultural programmes and culinary delights related to fish in all its fabulous forms. 

Find out more about the detailed program and the competitions on the festival's Facebook page.
