No spring fair in Budapest in 2020

We were all looking forward to the spring fair in Budapest in 2020. But, because of the coronavirus, we can now forget all about it, and instead, hope that the virus will stop joking around soon, and thus, we can at least prepare for the Christmas markets which should open in November.

Yes, the spring fair was supposed to open in April 2020 and remain open for three weeks. But, the way things are today, this is not even something to think about. Why not?

The people of Hungary are still allowed to be outdoor and walk the streets of Budapest. But, the fair is even more for tourists. But, considering that tourists are not allowed to enter the country, the main source of visitors and income for the market is not even present, and thus, there is no need to keep the market open. And even more important, such an event will make you meet lots of other people, eat together, and it is a perfect place for the coronavirus to spread. As a result, the latter is most likely the main reason why the spring fair isn’t going to be arranged in 2020.

Budapest Spring Market 2023

Would you like to know more about the Spring market in Budapest, often referred to as the Budapest Easter market? Read on to find the dates for the market, its location, and everything else there is to know about this popular market in Budapest.

Budapest is well known for its beautiful Christmas Market with an incredible atmosphere at the Vörösmarty Tér in Budapest. But, have you ever visited the Easter market, also known as the Spring Market?

Maybe you have heard about the amazing Schönbrunn in Vienna was an annual Easter market is arranged? It is quite famous, and lots of people go there every year. But, did you know that the Easter market in Budapest is getting better and better? If you haven’t experienced it yet, now is the time!

Many people enjoy the Christmas markets because of the amazing lights, and the smells that spread so well in the cold air. Well, even though it is warmer and brighter during the annual Easter market (Spring Fair/Spring market), you can still experience awesome foods, delightful smells, and lots of handicraft products if you visit the market.

The largest lines are always in front of the places where you can buy the traditional Chimney Cake, but you should also taste all the interesting food, and buy some hand-made products in the many stalls around the square.

Should you get tired of the market itself, then you can always grab something to eat in Gerbeaud or Hard Rock Cafe.

The dates are not published yet…

Normally the spring market in Budapest has been held at the same dates as the spring festival, but that is no longer true. For a long time, the spring market was arranged at the Vörösmarty square, but that is no longer true either. Instead, you can now find the spring market in the Városháza park (City Hall park). This is located very much in the center of Budapest as well, meaning that it is very easy to find it.

How to get to the Easter market?

You can easily get to this market using the underground/metro. If you travel to the stop Deak Ferenc square (which is where three of the four metro lines intersect), you will get out of the metro and be at the location of the spring market at once.

If you are looking for a smaller market/fair, you will also find a similar Easter/Spring market next to the Allee Shopping Center on the Buda side, next to the end station of tram number 4. Here you can buy handmade clothes, bags, wallets, Palinka, wine, chimney cakes, and other small stuff.


As mentioned earlier, there is a very famous Spring market in Vienna by Schönbrunn. If you have a car and want to drive a lot, then you can start your five-hour drive towards Prague (from Budapest), and you can experience the delightful Easter markets in Prague as well!

The Spring Fair of 2016 will be arranged between March 25th and April 24th. We visited the Spring Fair a few days ago and to be honest, it is simply brilliant. In a way we liked it even more than the Christmas fair, because there are not that many places to shop, making it easier to walk around, there are more free space, but the things for sale are brilliant and feels more Hungarian than the stuff you buy at the Christmas market. In addition you can buy chimney cakes, langos and lots of other goodies, making sure that you will not leave Budapest hungry!

If you have time, do not miss out out on the Spring Fair at the Vörösmarty Square, available until April 24th in 2016!
