Marché des régions francaises et hongroises

French Festival 1111

Today is 14th of March..I mean July (thank you Natalie!). This day is not special in Hungary…but it’s the national holiday in France. And every year we celebrate it with a festival. I guess the celebration has no political significance (for example we do not celebrate the American 4th of July) but more to do with the great activity of the French Institute in Budapest who organize this event every year.

More photos you can see here.

To honour France’s national holiday I copy here the report on the event in French too:

Bal de rue et marché des régions française Samedi 14 et dimanche 15 juillet, 12h, Institut Français, Quai Bem
A l’occasion de la Fête nationale et de l’ouverture de l’Année économique de la France en Hongrie, le Quai Bem se métamorphosera en bal populaire pour deux journées chaleureuses et festives.

Les visiteurs pourront apprécier le programme musical proposé par des artistes français (venus de Bretagne, de Corse…) et hongrois tout en flânant le long des stands de spécialités régionales (culinaires et artisanales) proposées par les régions françaises. Suivant la tradition, un feu d’artifice sera tiré sur le Danube à la tombée de la nuit, le samedi 14..

    Hello Zsolt, thank you very much for your comment on my blog. I like your photos. I have never been to your country but I have been more interested in it since we have had a president of Hungarian origin. :-)) Have a nice week.
