39 amazing things to do in Budapest, 24 February – 1 March

Going out this week Budapest 24 February - 1 March 2020

Gear up for an exciting week in Budapest, where new exhibitions and cool sport events await — and top talent takes the stage.

With many opening exhibitions and cultural attractions, Budapest is busy this week with art. You've got a few days left to see the István Farkas (1887-1944) Forsaken Exhibition, make sure you don't miss it! But then the Bodies 2.0- WITTGENSTEIN- Kamill Major's- and Paolo Ventura's Exhibition will all open during the week.

American Football fans will be delighted to hear about two events: there is a Training Camp With Professional NFL Players going on and also Budapest Cowbells face off against Szombathely Crushers in a pre-season game. There are water polo and football games too, and Budapest Boat Show opens its gates on Thursday.

On stage this weekend is Néptáncantológia, the beautiful Folk Dance Festival and I have suggested a romantic comedy and an opera play as well to theatre lovers.

Electronic music fans will be happy to see Tycho, Acid Arab and Exiles - they are all promising acts. I have brought something though for Irish music- and Hungarian ska- supporters too: Bran and Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra present their music on the weekend.

And if you haven't already, sign up to the Budapest Weekly Newsletter to avoid disappointment!
