Open-air mega event Vörösmarty Square
One of the main attractions of the Budapest Christmas Fair is that it is organized especially to introduce Hungarian customs, traditional food and drink, folk arts and crafts and bands playing traditional and folk music.Budapest Christmas Market
The unique festive atmosphere is helped by the use of friendly wooden pavilions and the matchless array of products for sale offered by them: over 100 craft pavilions display traditional products, special gifts and folk art and craft objects judged and approved by the Association of Hungarian Folk Artists.
For visitors who have a taste for traditional gastronomic delights the city centre location of the fair is a real heaven: the smell of the fresh bread “lángos” baked in the traditional “Töki” clay oven, the stands of caramelised pastry horn makers, traditional country food baked in clay ovens, friendly meat grills attract anybody walking near the fair. If you like good mulled wine, you will find it here in the Vörösmarty square and after drinking it, you can take home the special mug it was served in: the “Christmas Fair Mug” gets a new design every year.
Should all this be not enough, visitors of the square are continuously entertained by a cavalcade of Hungarian folk music, folk dance, classical music, children’s programmes and concerts.
Thanks to the host pavilions, hot drinks, delicacies and stage performances on Vörösmarty square the Budapest Christmas Fair is more than just a folk art fair: it is a perfect program where visitors can spend longer time, an excellent, memorable event for friends and family to take part in. The beautiful scene, the shopping and eating opportunities, the stage performances and accompanying programs add up to the experience where every visitors can be part of a real festive Christmas holiday.
Apart from the huge Christmas tree on the square, the story-telling Nativity, the larger-than-life Advent wreath another essential part of the Budapest Christmas Fair is the Advent Calendar in the windows of the Gerbeaud house. From 1 to 24 December at exactly 5 o’clock in the afternoon another window of the calendar is opened, accompanied by beautiful chime music and festive wind-instrument pieces. All windows hide a stunning contemporary painting and these are unveiled for the sound of music and some special lighting effects.
The preparation for Christmas is the most important time of the year for families and children. The Budapest Christmas Fair is happy to welcome children on the square; not only the huge Christmas tree, the advent wreath, the musical calendar but also programs organized especially for them await even the smallest visitors: magical Nativity scene, special children’s puppet theatre performances, heated children’s craft tent visiting Santa.
