As part of the monumental event of 2021 including more than 15 locations and 500 programs, the largest art event of the year was held as the first large public gathering without any COVID restrictions
Countless traditions and celebrations are observed annually on the saint’s feast day in Hungarian communities throughout the Carpathian Basin, but Budapest’s celebrations commemorating the foundation of the Hungarian state are the most outstanding. This year the government has prepared a “monumental” four-day-long program to celebrate Hungary’s August 20 national holiday this year. Festivities in the capital started in the morning with the raising of the Hungarian flag and continue weekend long with concerts, fairs, family activities, parades, flight show, educational & art installations. The celebration was crowed with a spectacular fireworks display over the Danube River synchronized with light show, drone show, and projection mapping on Castle of Buda and – first time ever – on the Hungarian Parliament building.
