Vörösmarty Square’s winter fair is just around the corner
Between 28 November and 31 December 2014, Vörösmarty Square greets visitors with a stage and with a beautiful carousel, a colourful cultural programme, presentations and a fair of Hungarian arts and crafts, plus traditional food and drinks. The premier winter event of the city will again fill the square with irresistible aromas, craft and design products that make unique Christmas presents, and the sound of live music, played on two stages by a variety of performers.
Arts and crafts
The organizers want to ensure that quality is maintained year after year, and so the craftsmen and artists who can sell their goods here are selected by a four-member professional jury, who apply strict criteria. A broad selection of folk art goods are available at the fair, including leather and bone articles, ceramics, blue-dyed textiles, felt goods, hand-made jewellery, and much, much more. In addition to the merchandise, the Fair is also worth visiting for great ideas that will make the holidays unforgettable.
Gastronomic adventures
The Christmas Fair on Vörösmarty Square has become a kind of trademark in the world of fair food. The four-week event series offers a great chance to taste traditional Hungarian festive cuisine and drinks. Trust the restaurateurs featured to provide you with more than food: in their hands, gastronomy becomes a way to confer some of the essence of Christmas. Find such much-loved meals as stuffed cabbage, fried fish and fish soup, along with other delicacies of the season. When it comes to dessert, poppy seed and walnut rolls will be in abundance. December may be as alluring with its duvet of snow as it can be grim. Luckily, hot drinks will be there to warm up shoppers, who can try mulled wine, grog, punch, or the favourite of recent years, krampampuli.
Cultural events on two stages
High spirits are in order at a time of celebration, so Christmassy entertainment will also be provided on two stages. The programme includes folk, jazz, street and world music performances, puppet shows and dance clubs—fun for all ages, without language barriers. Visitors to the country will have a glimpse of how the holiday is celebrated here, just as locals will be delighted to hear an old tune or rhyme. Children can take a rest in the playhouse, where they can also learn how to handle natural fibrous materials, and create decorations for the Christmas tree.
