porkoltThose who have visited the festival before know that it offers an uninterrupted flow of cultural and gastronomic events for three days on end, with a pinch of novelty added to the programme each year.

One emblematic programme of the festival is the Stew Making Competition. Besides the competing teams, mayors (on Saturday) and Members of Parliament (on Sunday) will also demonstrate their cooking skills.
Those not participating in the competition can taste stew at the Stew Show. The show will be held in Stew Square, where restaurant chefs will be offering over 30 truly special stews to those interested and hungry. Sample portions of 0.2 litres will be served at prices from HUF 300.

A foretaste of stews to come:

  • Wild Boar Stew with Prunes
  • Fairy Ring Mushroom Stew with Blueberries for Vegetarians
  • Kangaroo Stew with Raspberry Essence
  • Crayfish Stew Zala Style
  • Crocodile Stew
  • Emu Stew
  • Buffalo Stew with Bolete
  • Beef Cheek Stew with Tripe
  • Cock Stew with the Pride and Fame of Little Rooster
  • Dudum Stew Cooked with Dumplings
  • Frog Stew Soroksár Style
  • Sturgeon Stew

For three days Feszt-goers will be entertained by more than a hundred performers playing on four stages. There will be pop, rock, jazz, and country concerts. The performers include Deák Bill Blues Band, Első Emelet, Piramis, Budapest Ragtime Band, Pink Floyd Tribute Band, Palya Bea, Wahorn András & Bakáts Tibor & Para-Kovács Imre, Géniusz and Blue Mood.

While the adults are enjoying good food and modern culture the children will not be bored either. They can do crafts, make clay movies, and play various interactive games, as well as have fun with Péter Levente and Richie the Clown or sea a fairy play. Families will find it easy to stay for the whole day as the Feszt will have baby feeding and changing rooms, as well as a child supervision facility.

The PerifériArt exhibition is one more must to see.
Attractions of SzeptEmber Feszt 2009 will also include street music, veteran cars, a ski show, a wine and pálinka street, and shows with various Hungarian all-time highs.
Come to Népliget at the first weekend of this September. Don’t miss this year’s SzeptEmber Feszt!
