Budapest Spring Fair

The fair is complete with cultural diversions and folklore musical and dance performances.
Várkert Bazaar Budapest
31 March – 2 April 2018
The Várkert Bazaar at the foot of Castle Hill in Buda gives home to a colourful festival at Easter: Family programmes, an Easter egg exhibition, concerts, folk dance performances, craft workshops with traditional egg-decorating techniques, and a cooking show await everyone at the nicely restored historic venue.
Hungarian Open Air Museum, Szentendre
1-2 April 2018
This quaint Danube-side village is not just home to an old Serbian Orthodox church and romantically colourful winding streets, as its village park, Scansion, will, over Easter, become home to an Easter Festival. Complete with traditional egg painting, a spring awakening and a bunny fest, the festival aims to revive old customs related to spring’s most symbolic celebration.
30 March – 2 April 2018
Hollókő’s Easter Festival celebrates the joy of life, reviving traditions long forgotten to mark the occasion. Enjoy cultural diversions, presentations of traditional folk customs and regional “Paloc” culinary treats against the backdrop of Hollókő’s famous peasant houses and cobbled streets. There will be special programmes for children, while adults will busy themselves pouring well water over women dressed in their best traditional embroidered outfit – an old Easter custom to make sure women won’t wilt.
Train History Park
2 April 2018
The history of locomotives comes alive in Europe’s biggest such thematic park, Vasúttörténeti Park. Apropos of Easter, the park will hold a day of diversions titled “Easter Bunny Hunt”.
