With free gigs, a kid’s court, food and drink specialties and an all-day street fair, the 10th Judafest Street Festival presents unique cultural and culinary experiences in the vibrant and historic Jewish Quarter of downtown Budapest.

From the organisers:

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

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, this years’ Judafest extended to a three-day event from Friday to Sunday. On Sunday, 11 June, the festival fills Kazinczy street with live performances, concerts and a colorful street fair. Visitors also get the opportunity to explore flavorful authentic Jewish dishes and a collection of craft art, plus children are offered several activities throughout the day.

On Friday, 9 June, visitors will get the chance to attend Jewish liturgies, and Saturday features a series of exciting city walks discovering the hidden corners of the old Jewish Quarter.

Welcoming EUNIC, the network of European national cultural institutes, Judafest will host Europe as guest of honor, symbolizing the need and aim for continuous dialogue in today’s diverse world.

Judafest Street Festival, a truly multicultural event, traditionally attracts both local and foreign visitors, giving them chance to meet old friends and new people.
