Are you a fan of sweet pastry? Have you ever tasted a cinnamon roll and loved it? Still haven’t tasted the fantastic Chimney Cake (Kürtöskalacs?) Check out this festival in Budapest!
The Kürtőskalács Fesztivál (Chimney Cake Festival) has turned into an annual tradition in Budapest. In 2018, it will be arranged for the sixth time. It has been held at several locations, but it will be arranged at the same spot in 2018 as in 2017, that is, the Gesztenyes Kert (Chestnut Garden). This is located a bit outside the heart of Budapest, but that is only to its advantage. This is a peaceful area, but it will be full of life during the time of the festival.
Sekler Cake Festival dates 2018 (Chimney Cake festival)
They have started calling the Kürtőskalács Sekler Cake instead of Chimney Cake, but it isn’t the title, but the taste that matters. In 2018, the festival will be arranged from October 12th till October 14th.
How to get to the Gesztenyes garden?
- Tram number 61 to Csörsz street.
- Tram number 59 or bus number 105 to Apor Vilmos square.
- Bus 110 or 112 to Sirály street.
- Bus 212 from Alkotás street.
- Bus 139 from the South Railway Station (Metro 2).
These are some of the options. You might have to walk a couple of hundred meters from the stops to the actual festival area, but that shouldn’t cause much trouble. The area is very close to the shopping mall Mom Park.
There is no entrance fee, meaning that everyone can come and go in the festival area whenever they want.
What’s going on in the festival area?
There will be daily competitions taking place, there will be interactive stories told to the children, and there will be quite a lot of concerts. On the Saturday evening at 20:00 Kati Wolf will sing. She is most famous for representing Hungary in the Eurovision Song Contest with this song back in 2011 with this song.
Does this sound like a cool program to visit? Mark the dates, October 12th, October 13th and October 14th in 2018.

Don’t buy chimney cake from the kiosk at Buda Castle. It costs 1,400 HUF and the dough inside is still raw!!
