This was the 7th Jewish Cultural and Gastronomy Street Festival. It had everything for the complete family day. With free gigs, a kids’ court, food and drink, an all-day street fair and the best of cultural life and culinary delights that the vibrant downtown Budapest and the historic Jewish Quarter bring.
Kazinczy Street, once Kereszt Street, is the heart of what is today seen as one of Europe’s unique city districts, with a fabulous atmosphere filled with Jewish and multicultural tradition going back to several hundred years.
The Festival revives the special heritage of Kazinczy Street, with live performances, concerts and a colorful street fair. Performers on three stages included Jónás Vera Experiment, Gájer Bálint, Rutkai Bori Banda, Dés Mihály and many more.
A multicultural festival, attracting several thousand local and touring visitors, with special city walks offering a chance to discover the hidden corners of the old Jewish Quarter and the chance to meet old friends and new people. And as they say in this particular quarter “Shalom”!
