Grape Harvest Festival of Tokaj-Hegyalja - 2007

October 5 - October 7, 2007


The history of the Tokaj-Hegyalja Grape Harvest Festival goes back for centuries. Throughout the years, local wineries celebrated the end of the harvest season with the harvest festival and the comparing of the fruits of their labor. This October is no exception to the rule. Celebration begins on Friday evening (October 5) with wine tasting and cultural programs on Tokaj’s Main Square, and the festivities go on for two days.


As it has been the tradition, the costumed Grape Harvest Parade starts on Saturday, at 2.00 PM, and at the end of the parade route, on Kossuth Square, Tokaj-Hegyalja mayors will present their grapes for the Mayors’ Wine, which will be available for tasting at the Tokaj Wine Festival on the last weekend of May 2008.
