Invitation: Easter Merriment In Budapest, Catle District, 30 March - 1 April
It is the second time that the three events reflecting the heritage of centuries - Easter related traditions and customs - is being organised in the Royal Palace of the Buda Castle. Besides the arts and crafts fair, visitors can enjoy a multicultural program throughout the weekend, including world music concerts, dance ensembles, blues and rock, special performances for kids.

Classical music concerts, guided tours with music, exhibitions and playhouses for children organised in the Budapest Historical Museum enrich the program. Special guest town: Székelyudvarhely (Odorheiu Secuiesc), Romania/Transylvania.

The colourful feast will start with an exciting procession around the most beautiful parts of the Royal Palace with traditional dance rituals such as erection of the tree of life and stilt walkers. The main stage in the Lion’s Court features the dance ensembles, musicians, soloists and masters coming from the territory of Hungary and the neighbouring countries who made themselves well known in the recently broadcasted folk competition titled „The peacock has perched”.

As Lent is over, everyone can enjoy the culinary feast. The so called Wine Terrace is dedicated to mouth watering Hungarian Easter specialties and wines introducing the cellars of the Carpathian Basin. Handicrafts can be watched in preparation in traditional workshops, and visitors can try some of these ancient techniques themselves. The little are entertained at the interactive egg hunting play houses or at the fairytale labyrinth.
