Debrecen is a city famous for its packed event schedule, with something special taking place every week (or so it seems). It’ll be impossible to attend every single event, but make some special time for these 10 (in no particular order).
The biggest event on the Debrecen calendar is the Flower Parade, which takes place every August. Once upon this was a single day celebration, but its popularity has seen it evolve into a week-long colourful carnival.
Sticking with carnivals, the annual Dalido celebration has fast become one of Debrecen’s most exciting. This is usually the first major event of the year following NYE, with plenty of live entertainment for all the family.
The biggest music festival in Eastern Hungary takes place every July in Debrecen’s Great Forest. Well, in a host of venues throughout the forest to be exact, with over 200 bands performing in over 40 different spots.
Debrecen is blessed with the Great Forest, and every Autumn the verdant stretch comes alive to the strain of culture, culture and more culture. If you’re after high quality culture in a stunning setting, this will tick your box.
