Judafest Events Program In Budapest, 7 - 10 June
Judafest annual arts extravaganza is back in Budapest’s historical Jewish Quarter this June.

From the organisers:

Kazinczy street in District 7 has always been the heart of what is today considered one of Europe’s must-see urban destinations with an unmatched atmosphere filled with living Jewish and multicultural tradition dated back to several hundred years.

Judafest – for the first time in its history, this year a four-day event – revives the unique heritage of Kazinczy Street and its neighbourhood with live gigs, concerts and a colorful street market. Judafest attendees also get the opportunity to explore flavorful authentic Jewish dishes and a collection of craft art. Also, special city walks offer a chance to discover the hidden corners of the old Jewish Quarter.

The festival's guest of honour this year is the Hungarian-speaking Jewish community, who will be represented by a number of cities from Hungary and abroad.
