Budafok Champagne and Wine Festival

Do you want to taste some wine or local sparkling wine? Does it sound tempting to visit a festival with a very large percentage of locals visiting? This is the festival to visit!

There are lots of fantastic festivals arranged in Budapest every year, but many of them are packed with tourists, and too expensive for the locals. But, if you come to the Budafok Champagne and Wine Festival you will discover something completely different.

First of all, the festival is free to visit. All you need to do is to travel on tram 47 from Deak Ferenc Ter / Astoria / Fovam tér, and travel to the end station. You will then be in the festival area and from here you can walk around accompanied by thousands of locals as you taste wine, champagne, and spirits, or eat some cool Hungarian festival food.

Hungary’s most famous champagne maker, Törley, has a factory in this area. They are heavily taking part in the festival, and as a visitor, you can also visit their factory to taste and to learn.

Bubble festival in Budapest (Buborék Fesztivál)

This weekend a Bubble festival (Buborék Fesztivál) is arranged in Budapest at the Elisabeth square, next to the popular club Akvarium.

The opening day of the festival was yesterday and it will last until tomorrow, so if you have the chance, drop by the square to see what this cool festival has to offer. The program is going on at the square from 14.00 until 02.00 and at the square there will be concerts, DJ and lots of bubbles to drink. Because after all, bubbles is what the festival is about, bubbles in drinks.

That again means that at the festival which has free entrance you can taste champagne, sparking wine, prosecco and lots of other tasty and famous drinks. As the sun goes down, the party starts, so this might be one of the best places if you want to party and dance before and after midnight!

The Buborek fesztival is arranged for the second time this year, first time was in 2012. Hopefully that means that it was a success in 2012 and that it is a festival that we can count on in the years to come!
