MCC Festival, Esztergom, 27 - 29 July
MCC Feszt is a 3-days festival where we celebrate the „Hungarian talent” and which offers exciting talks, public debates, interactive programs and parties in the city center of Esztergom.

The 3rd MCC Feszt will be held on 27-29 July 2023.

MCC Feszt is more than a traditional festival: besides a wide array of cultural programs, concerts, and sports activities, we provide a platform to exchange ideas and discuss the topics and issues that interest today’s young intellectuals.

Visitors will have the opportunity to meet renowned foreign guests.

In keeping with tradition, programs featuring renowned foreign experts will be one of the mainstays of this year's MCC Feszt.

Foreign invitees include, among others, Mark Daniel Regnerus, professor of Sociology at the University of Texas at Austin, Jay W. Richards, director of the Richard and Helen DeVos Center for Life, Religion, and Family and senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation and the Discovery Institute, Dean Karalekas, research fellow at the Centre for Austronesian Studies at the University of Central Lancashire, author of several books, including The Men in No Man's Land: A Journey Into Bir Tawil and Civil-Military Relations in Taiwan: Identity and Transformation.

 David Wolpe, Max Webb senior rabbi at Temple Sinai in Los Angeles, author of eight books, including the bestseller Making Loss Matter and David: The Divided Heart, will also be present at the festival.

A variety of musical and professional programs await the festivalgoers

Musical performers at the three-day festival will offer exciting entertainment for all ages. The event will focus on showcasing musical talent and feature bands that combine classical music and jazz with pop music to create a unique sound.
