This festival has became a tradition in the last 5 years. Now it is held on February 10-12 at Széchenyi Square, 5-minutes from our Budapest city hotel. Mangalitsa is a special Hungarian pig that has a 200 years old history in Hungary.
The festival is free for every visitor therefore the true value of the festival is the opportunity to taste the best mangalica products of Hungary. Attendees can meet directly the breeders and producers from all over the country which means in most cases they can buy the goods from the people who actually produce it.
Next to the Mangalica goods there are always outstanding quality Hungarian products, great live music, cultural and kids programmes, excellent wines and schnaps (pálinka) and the inevitable cooking contest as well.
