Gobefest CANCELLED at Cathedral Gardens, Cathedral Quarter, 26–28 June 2020, free entry - Visit now

The much-loved Góbéfest returns this June with a joyous showcase of the arts, culture, food and drink of the fabled-region of Transylvania.

Split this year between Cathedral Gardens and Exchange Square, you can enjoy traditional music together with new sounds from artists from Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Ukraine and the UK. You can also watch or take part in folk dance demonstrations, which teach the steps of the Csárdás – a traditional Hungarian folk dance which starts out slowly and ends up devilishly fast.

We also look forward sampling some Romanian craft beer and authentic delicacies in the festival’s food market. Be sure to try the spit-roasted sweet treat chimney cake and lángos (fried dough served with various toppings such as crème frèche and garlic)!

Finally, this year’s includes a family activity tent running arts and music workshops, enchanting puppet shows, a makers’ craft market, folk dance demonstration, small-batch craft food sampling and many other musical and culinary delights.
