Bring On Spring! Vörösmarty Square Fair
Now on until 22 April. The Spring Fair aims to delight folkloric fans and handmade craft aficionados. As always it aims to be popular during the Easter holidays, offering free family friendly programs. Shoppers may find delightful local treasures as they browse among the vendors in wooden huts selling a variety of gift items, clothing and accessories, in both traditional styles and with modern interpretations which also respect age-old traditions.

In addition to traditional products, there are also updated versions of folk art objects and creations from various designers. But even if you don’t plan on shopping, as the festival aims to provide high quality entertainment to the residents of Budapest and visitors to the capital alike with cultural events, arts and crafts presentations, folk music and folk dance shows.

Besides musical performances, visitors can catch a glimpse into the work of traditional craftspeople, with demonstrations by basket-weavers, potters and blacksmiths.

These interactive, family-oriented presentations of folk traditions will change every week: there will be opportunities to try felting, beading and glassblowing, as well as making jewellery, musical instruments or cheese. If you find that the bustle of the market is making you peckish, a wide variety of culinary treats await!

The fair’s food stands mostly feature mouthwatering roasts and traditional dishes, but those with a sweet tooth will also find plenty to choose from among the artisanal marzipan and chocolates, as well as the perennial favourite of Hungarian fairs, kürtőskalács, or spike or chimney cakes, baked onsite over an open fire.

Address: 1051 Budapest, Vörösmarty Square
