Budapest Palace Quarter Festival

 

Palace Quarter is the unworthily forgotten cultural quarter of the historic Józsefváros, where many national monument palaces can be found. This part of the city used to be a popular cultural and entertainment quarter for the citizens of Pest, and it is still an area with deep historical traditions and probably the most institutes of culture and higher education in the capital. The Municipality of Józsefváros would like to utilise this exceptional feature – in close cooperation with its institutes and universities – within the framework of the recently introduced City Centre of Europe Programme.

The programme includes several events in the summer-autumn period: The cultural life of the district will be refreshed by an antiquarian book market, a street festival, concerts, World Dance Festival, Science Festival, Music Court, Folktale Day and an Erkel exhibition. The venues are the following: Szabó Ervin Library (Wenckheim Palace), Kossuth Club (Hadik Palace), National Museum, the headquarters of the Association of Hungarian Architects (Almásy Palace), the romantic Gólyavár in Trefort garden, Casa de la Música and Festetics Palace (Andrássy University today).

The Palace Quarter Festival is the key event of the programme. On 4-6 June organisers await those who would like to be entertained with performances of a high standard at five public venues (Krúdy Gyula Street, Gutenberg Square, Mikszáth Square, Lőrinc Pap Square). There will be performances for all age groups. The events include handicraft demonstrations, special board games, health counselling, literary discussions, stilt artists, theatre performances and concerts. Among others, visitors can enjoy the performances of the following artists: Bea Palya, Ghymes, Judit Halász, András Berecz, Ági Szalóki and Besh o droM.

The district leaders’ long-term strategic objectives are to increase the prestige of District VIII, to link the Palace Quarter into the traffic flows of the city centre, to develop the district into a university quarter, to increase its attractive power to tourists, to protect its built and cultural heritage and to develop the economy of Józsefváros through all these.

The Palace Quarter Festival continues in August. Before the start of the new season, the company of Bárka Theatre will introduce its new performance in an extraordinary way on the steps of the National Theatre!
