The Harvest Days in Szekszárd will be organized to preserve the tradition of harvest and to maintain the noble connection between wine and culture.
This event is held every year on the third weekend of September. The organizers provide high-quality programs, exhibitions, concerts and wine-tastings to the visitors, including gastronomic specialties of the region. Not only professional artists, but amateur groups and alternative bands will also be present, along with DJs and a street dance program.
The most spectacular part of the event is the Harvest March, to be held on Saturday afternoon. Creative formations of equipment related to the harvest, colorful traditional folk dresses, folk dance ensembles and related institutions will participate in the march.
Similar to last year, the Wine Courtyard will be established in the renovated, historical city center, where 39 local winery and 2 spirit house will comfort visitors looking for local wines and spirits.
Szekszárd, a small city with historical atmosphere, is located in the South-Pannon region of Hungary, just a step from the river Danube, surrounded by gentle sloping hills. The name of Szekszárd immediately reminds us to red wine, because red wine has been cultivated over thousands of years on the hills surrounding the city.
Szekszárd is proud of its wine culture and folk traditions, which are recalled on the third weekend of every September and celebrated with music, dance, local food stalls, street performances and an arts and crafts market to be held during the wine festival spanning over several days.
