During the 11th Hiros Week Festival, August 18 – 24, 2008, the above localities will introduce their produce and products, their agricultural goods and crafts at the Horticulture Expo and Food Show on the Main Square, Kecskemet.

Fringe event of the Expo is the 9th Agricultural Forum, on Thursday, August 21, between 9.00 AM and 12.00 noon, at the Ferenc Erdei Cultural and Conference Center (Erdei Ferenc Kulturális és Konferencia Központ).

Another important parallel event, the Tourism Forum will be held on Friday, August 22, between 9.00 AM and 1.00 PM, at the Granada Conference Wellness and Sport Hotel (Granada Konferencia, Wellness és Sporthotel). Attendants of the Tourism Forum will be able to learn about tenders for the tourism industry, and to meet an artisan of the region. A guest speaker from a neighboring country is also invited.

As it has been the tradition for years, every day new localities will get a chance to introduce themselves. After a brief address by the local mayor, crafts exhibits, tasting of local produce, and cultural productions will introduce guests to the local treasures, as it follows:
