Welcome to the III Balaton International Folk Festival at the Hungarian Sea! This annual celebration takes place on the shores of Lake Balaton, the largest lake in Central Europe and a beloved summer destination for Hungarians and tourists alike.
The festival is a wonderful opportunity for groups to showcase their traditional folk music and dance performances and be part of the vibrant cultural scene in Hungary. The beautiful natural surroundings of Lake Balaton provide the perfect backdrop for the festival, and the warm summer weather adds to the festive atmosphere.

In addition to the performances, there will be plenty of activities to enjoy, such as traditional Hungarian crafts, local food and drink vendors, and water sports on the lake.
The festival also offers a chance for participants to engage with other groups and exchange cultural traditions and experiences. It’s a unique opportunity to learn from one another and make new connections across borders.
