Organic Food and Wine Festival in Hajdúszoboszló

The three days of the festival offer visitors plenty of meals made of organic ingredients at the catering counters, and a wide range of products of organic producers at the craftsmen’s tents. Traditional Hungarian wine regions introduce themselves during the event, so visitors can taste brilliant Hungarian wines at the wine pavilions to accompany the brilliant meals. During the three-day event excellent programmes also guarantee the possibility of entertainment and recreation. Dance students of the local art school, folk music bands and local performing artists will perform at the festival. The programme also includes lectures popularizing the organic lifestyle, as well as pop concerts.

Besides the healing power of the thermal water of Hajdúszoboszló, the event also aims at drawing attention to healthy eating which greatly contributes to the healing of our body and soul, and which is easier to achieve with the help of meals made of organic ingredients. Hajdúszoboszló and its area is an ideal place to advertise this lifestyle, since the healing effect of the thermal water of Hajdúszoboszló has been well-known worldwide for over 90 years. Hortobágy, which is part of the world heritage, lies 30 km from the spa town, where the largest area for organic livestock can be found (Racka sheep, Hungarian Grey Cattle, Mangalica pig), and one of the biggest organic vegetable farms of Hungary is in the nearby Balmazújváros.

The Organic Food and Wine Festival of Hajdúszoboszló is a unique gastronomic event of Hungary, where organic food and wine get linked together.
