SzeptEmber Feszt-Gastronomic and Cultural Festival

On the 2nd to the 4th September 2011 the SzeptEmber Feszt is once again in the Budapest Népliget (People's Garden). A cavalcade of gastronomic delights, great concerts and excellent events - there's something for all age groups. Visitors will be presented with a plethora of genuine gastronomic experiences. There will be fish dishes, game and traditional Hungarian cuisine prepared by the head chefs of famous restaurants to stimulate the appetite.

Did you know that goulash is originally a soup? Well, if you would like to try "goulash", then here you should order "pörkölt" at the Stew Square where you can choose from 30 types of stew. Do not miss out on the desserts either as freshly baked strudel (rétes) will be made on the Strudel Train. Among the 35 types of strudel on offer you will find practically everything from the traditional cottage cheese and sour cherry varieties all the way to the polenta-fruit and cabbage-truffle delicacies. And that is not all that is there for gourmets. You can try the official SzeptEmber Feszt cocktail in the cocktail bar, visit all 10 stations on the Wine and Cheese Circle or gather tips from competitors in the Hungarian Grill Championship.

Feszt-goers to the 3-day festival will be entertained by concerts on the 5 stages with a wide variety of music too, mainly pop, rock and jazz. Outstanding figures from the Hungarian jazz scene will perform in the 3rd Hungarian Jazz Days. The star guest is the American jazz drummer Billy Cobham and Morgan Workshop who will play at the Saturday concert.

There is also plenty for those who come to the Népliget with children. Little ones will love the tales games, playhouse, handcrafts, funfair, stroking the animals and pony-riding set up for them in the "Children's Empire". The baby feeding and nappy-changing tent will make everything that little bit easier for those families with small children.

In between concerts or tastings you may want to take a look at the American and Tuning Cars Meeting where you are sure to find real rarities among the several hundred cars - classic and more modern. Craftsmen will demonstrate their handcraft skills and the artwork market, Health Island and archery are just some of the numerous interesting things to see and do.
