The oldest harvest festival in the region – it started in 1932. Processions, traditional clothes and music – the town of Tokaj celebrates the Harvest Fest (Tokaj-hegyaljai Szüreti Napok). Festivities throughout the weekend include winemakers and a market along the main street, as well as music in the main square, where popular Hungarian bands take the stage. Catch Edda, Király Viktor, Tóth Vera, high energy Balkán Fanatik, Kormorán, Marót Viki and Nova Kultúrzenekar this year. This popular festival has been held since 1932 making it one of the longest continually-held in the wine region.
For a more personal take, visit the winemakers at their cellars – to taste the wines in situ. A couple of recommendations perhaps?
Hétszőlő, Hímesudvar, Paulay and Sauska, plus the Tokaj Coffee Roasting Company with Cili and the drawing competition, and the recently opened Dufart Wine Club on the main square for a wide variety from guests tastings (wine to jams), music and exhibitions!
