Festival of Folk Arts and Crafts

The Alliance of Folk Art Associations invites tourists and locals, singles, parents and children in the Buda Castle, to participate in one of the most colorful, creative, and active cultural events of the Budapest summer.


At the Festival of Folk Arts and Crafts, the best Hungarian craftsmen and traditional folk artists introduce the secrets of their trade in their active workshops around the Buda Castle, and adults and children alike get a four-day opportunity to test their skills and craftsmanship. Some of the crafts that can be tried out at the event include felting, rush mat and rag doll making, string weaving, leatherwork, paper dipping, clay-working, and pottery. Visitors can also learn about old instruments on the terrace of the Palace of Buda.
