Concerts, Street Festival To Close Out V4 Cultural Season On 1 July
The chain of cultural events celebrating Hungary’s V4 presidency will wrap up with concerts and a street festival at Várkert Bazár and the Palace of Arts (Müpa) in Budapest on Saturday, the Hungarian Tourist Agency has said.

During its fifth tenure as V4 president, which is to be taken over by Slovakia on July 1, Hungary launched a series of cultural events with a view to strengthening ties among the member states, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and itself, the agency said.

Performers at Várkert Bazár will include violinist Luca Kézdy, Polish orchestra Kapela Brodow, Evelin Tóth and the Ewiva band and the Hola Polska band, which plays music from all over the world from Polish swing to South American music, the statement said.

The events will wrap up with a street festival in the evening.

The closing event will be an operetta gala in Müpa’s Bartók Hall. Other events will include tastings of the V4 countries’ emblematic foods and screenings of famous Czech and Polish films.
