The PONT Festival presents traditions, customs, dances, and flavours from Hungary and the Balkans, treasures from UNESCO’s list of cultural heritage. From the morning, there will be interactive activities for the family, with Vilmos Gryllus welcoming spring with his songs, and folk music and fairy tales setting the mood at another concert, Tune In.
At events throughout the day for the whole family, dances, artisanal traditions, and the gastronomy of the region will be introduced. Experts will teach the tricks of lacemaking, wood carving, and carpet making to visitors, who can also make masks and learn to dance the kolo.
At the end of the day, world-famous cimbalom player Kálmán Balogh and the band of his choice will present two UNESCO cultural heritage listed Romanian traditions, the Doina and the Kaluser. The latter is an initiation rite, a dance of legendary virtuosity, which will be performed by the Dezső Fitos Company.
