District, VII., Kazinczy Street – Budapest, Hungary

Admission is free and so is parking around event area!

At this time of season, it has become a tradition to hold the biggest social event the Judafest Street Festival in Hungary. It  revives this exceptional heritage introducing the cultural life that vibrant downtown in Budapest.

Indeed a multicultural event, traditionally attractions both for locals and foreign visitors, giving them chance gathering together with old friends and to meet new acquaintances.

This year’s Judafest will host Germany as guest of honor at the festival, which will dedicate a series of cultural and culinary gigs to the country. Special guests from Germany include H. E. Dr. Heinz-Peter Behr, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Budapest and German Schmitts Katze Klezmer Band.

The past years more than ten thousand visitors spent their day at the street fair and the participation number each year are arising. Throughout the day: live performances, concerts, free gigs, collection of craft art, plus children are offered several activities. For the smaller kids various opportunity await them to enjoy themselves at “kids court” just as: to cook at the kitchen, be a gardener, or do washing at the laundry and party the earned money in the kibbutz bar’s drugstore, or go for a ride on the swing! As for the adults…  getting hungry no worry, the food and drink specialties just at their fingertips to explore flavorful authentic Jewish and German dishes.

The Kazinczy street is between the Király and Wesselényi Street based in the historic Jewish Quarter  has always been the heart of what is today considered one of Europe’s must see urban attractions with an unmatched atmosphere filled with living Jewish and multicultural tradition dated back to several hundred years.

During the day offering a guided special district walk tour, having a chance to discover the hidden corners of the old Jewish Quarter.

Last years’ Judafest’s extraordinary events were the evening getting together around a 50 meters long table installed in Kazinczy Street, where the organizers hosted a dinner for indigent families. This year a similar meal will be held in the spirit of solidarity and raising awareness.
