The CAFe Budapest Contemporary Art Festival - previously the Budapest Autumn Festival - is one of the most important contemporary art events in the region which we expect every year with huge excitement. A sparkling, unique and diverse city festival with the participation of the most important cultural institutions of Budapest. It often happens on unusual locations, public spaces of the city, where they present the most exciting and inspirational creators of the domestic and international cultural scene and their latest creations.

This year the festival is organized for the 27th time between 5 and 21 October and has such diverse program offer as in every year. From contemporary classical music to theatre premieres, from popular music and jazz to dance and visual art, the art of our times will again be highlighted in the Hungarian capital during the seventeen days of the event series, which is realized in cooperation between Müpa Budapest, the Budapest Festival and Tourism Centre and the Hungarian Tourism Agency. Besides the work of Béla Bartók, the other focus of this year’s festival will be art and artists of the Baltic States. The affiliated events of CAFe Budapest will again include the Budapest Ritmo world music festival, the Art Market Budapest and the Margin Literary Festival and Book Fair.
