Gala at the Hungarian Folk Dance Gathering

The Magyar Tanchaztalalkozo (Hungarian Folk Dance Festival) is a lively folk event, where most attendants will join the dance groups of various styles and ages, including children, youths, men, women, elderly people, whoever likes dancing and can dance! This is a very kid friendly event, so do bring your children, and let them learn some Hungarian folk steps too. We love to dance with children in circles, which makes them less shy to join.

Hungarian crafts are sold at the stalls in the Arena, which is filled with folk dance lovers from all over Hungary and from the neighboring countries where Hungarian ethnic groups live in large numbers, like Transylvania, Slovakian villages, Ukrainian villages, etc.

The Hungarian Folk Dance Festival is mostly aimed at locals, not meant for tourists, but you are welcome to join for sure. Do not expect to sit back and watch shows, or touristy programs. The festival encourages everyone to actively participate and dance. Put on your dancing shoes, and come to the gathering.
