Mulled wine, trumpet cake and bread with flame are essential accessories for the Advent fair. One of the attractions of the Christmas fair is the unique Christmas tree made by Hello Wood, which can be admired both inside and outside.

The Fő tér vásár awaits visitors every day from the first weekend of Advent until December 23, who can see high-quality musical productions and performances in tune with the holiday from Friday to Sunday.

In anticipation of Christmas, the spaces in several parts of Óbuda are decorated in December. Not only on Fő tér, but also on Csobánka tér, there is an ice rink and a decorated Christmas tree.
