We welcome new initiations, especially if it involves gastronomy, great and healthy gastronomy. This brand new festival seems to be able to win the hearts of Budapest residents and tourists alike. Do not expect the regular Fisherman's soup cooking competition: here, you can taste, touch and FEEL the fish. Organizers are to introduce the local fish industry, in addition to this year’s guests: Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, and Asian seafood. The fest’s gastro programs will be complemented by a great number of cult programs, including a jazz concert. Hungarian jazz singer Veronika Harcsa (whose second name translates to catfish) will step on stage.
