Christmas Markets are all over Budapest, and even though the most visited is the Christmas market on Vorosmarty Square (the oldest fair), there are multiple venues to see some more Budapest Christmas markets. We encourage you to take a look at more of them, such as the Xmas at the Basilica, or the fair on the courtyard of Vajdahunyad Castle, etc., and the Christmas fair on Budapest Erzsebet Ter (Elisabeth Square).
“Christmas Racket” on Elisabeth Square Budapest 2012
The name of the fair in 2012 is Karacsonyi Zsivaj (Christmas Racket). There will be many retro things as well as fire jugglers, concerts, and more. You can take a look at the many goods made by Hungarian toy makers, crafts of Hungarian designers, etc.
Venue: Erzsebet square downtown Budapest (right near Deak Square, and 5 min walk from two major Christmas markets in Budapest, the one on Vorosmarty square and the other on St Stephen’s Square by the Cathedral)
Date: December 8, 2012 (sorry, it is just a one day event as opposed to the rest of the Budapest Christmas markets)
Organizers: Szeretem Budapestet (SzeBu)
The organizers and supporters of SzeBu aim to get rid of the many – low level – graffiti signatures you can see in Budapest (amazingly a lot, and mostly no artistic value – we have nothing against Banksy!) :)
