Budapest Quarter 6 Quarter 7 Festival is one of the prominent Jewish Festivals in Budapest. Logically, Q6Q7 Festival is in the Jewish Quarter of Budapest (the quarter is in downtown Budapest, in District 6 and 7, hence the name of the festival).
Quarter6Quarter7 Festival is held twice a year, once in April at the Passover, and once in December at the Hanukkah.
The local festivals are very lively with various festivities from theatre performances through film screenings to Jewish culinary events, kosher and non-kosher Jewish traditional foods, live concerts, exhibitions, etc.
There are guided walking tours during the Quarter6Quarter7 Festival, where you can get some more in depth information about Judaism, and the Hungarian Jewish culture.
