Csongrád has many festivals every year for all kind of art groups – “Blooming Spring” Choir Festival in May, the “Dance and Music” Festival in late July, the “New Wine” Festival in November – from all around the world.
This year, we add to this colorful schedule the “Brass Band and Majorette” Festival, which will be hosted by the local Csongrád Brass Band, which was established in 1965 and invited to participate in 20 different countries.
