Heated tents, concerts, an amusement park, aquariums, adventure fishing, a giant barbecue and thousands of seats await visitors.

Spicy Fisherman's soup prepared exclusively from freshwater fish is sure to be a feature, and this gastronomic event also usually showcases cooking contests, wine and pálinka tastings, plus entertainment such as folklore shows.

This year’s festival will present carp as its star fish.
