Judafest, "The Biggest Social Festival In Hungary", Budapest, 8 June
With free gigs, a kid’s court, food and drink specialties and an all-day street fair, Judafest is bringing the best of cultural life and culinary that vibrant downtown Budapest and the historic Jewish Quarter offers.

Kazinczy Street, once Kereszt Street, has always been the heart of what is today considered one of Europe’s must see city districts with an unmatched atmosphere filled with living Jewish and multicultural tradition dated back to several hundred years.

On Sunday, June 8, Judafest Street Festival revives the unique heritage of Kazinczy Street with live performances, concerts and a colorful street fair. Performers on three stages include Jónás Vera Experiment, Gájer Bálint, Rutkai Bori Banda, Dés Mihály and many more. Judafest attendees also get the opportunity to explore flavorful authentic Jewish dishes and a collection of craft art, plus children are offered several activities and gigs throughout the day. Also, special city walks offer a special chance to discover the hidden corners of the old Jewish Quarter.

Additionally, the organizers of the event wish to remember the 70th anniversary of the holocaust with a ‘social dinner”. Inviting local and Jewish large families to an evening get together around a 50 meters long outdoor dining table, Judafest aims to remind visitors not only the past, but also the importance of the next 70 years ahead of us.

A truly multicultural festival, Judafest traditionally attracts several thousand local and foreign visitors, giving them chance to meet old friends and new people.
