5+1 program tips: discover Budapest in September
Posted by Mia Balogh · Sep 1, 2016

Summer might be over soon but don’t feel sad because this fall, Budapest will be more amazing and more colourful than ever. Let us give you a glimpse into the best programs in September!

1. II. Beer, Burger, Barbecue Festival

Traditionally, the first day of September means the beginning of the new school year in Hungary but this year, the second Beer, Burger, Barbecue Festival opens its gates on the same date, too. They are waiting for everyone who loves to try new tastes, interesting hamburgers and even more types of extraordinary beers.

When and where: 1-4 September at Millenáris Park

2. WizzAir Budapest Half Marathon

After enjoying the best burgers, beers and other types of street food, would you like to participate in something really active? We have an idea then: if you are a fan of running, the 31st Wizz Air Budapest Half Marathon can be fun for you, too. You can’t run 21 kilometres? Don’t worry, you can participate (and share the distance) in duo or in trio, as well.

When and where: 11 September in City Park

3. ‘Sétáló Karnevál’ / Walking carnival in Kazinczy Street

Kazinczy Street is known for its ruin pubs and restaurants, but now a really unique street festival – or let’s say street carnival – will take place there. Enjoy the concerts, family programs, competitions, cooking together with others and walking along there, because the street will be transformed into pedestrian street for a day on 3 September.

When and where: 3 September in Kazinczy Street

Every autumn, you can find wine festivals wherever you go in Hungary but the greatest of these festivals can be found in Buda Castle – enjoy the best wines here from Hungary and from foreign countries this year, too, from 8 to 11 September.

When and where: 8-11 September in Buda Castle

5. Red Hot Chili Peppers in Budapest

Singer Anthony Kiedis, bass player Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer return to Hungary after two decades and thanks to the enormous interest of their fans, they decided to give two shows instead of one.

When and where: 1 and 2 September in Budapest Sportarena

If you can’t visit Budapest this September, don’t worry, because October will be fun, too: you can enjoy super programs like for example the Chimney Cake Festival in Vajdahunyad Castle on 7 October.
