ReConnect Hungary at the Hungarian Festival in New Brunswick
On June 1, 2019 the Hungarian community will be celebrating the 44th annual Hungarian Festival in New Brunswick, NJ.
Somerset Street, one of the main arteries in the city, will be closed to all thru traffic and only the reveling pedestrians, vendors, performers, musicians and dignitaries from both New Brunswick and Hungary will be strolling about.
There is a lot going on throughout the day, so try not to miss visiting the ReConnect Hungary tent. Find out if you might be eligible for a scholarship to participate on next year’s (2020) ReConnect Hungary trip. If you or someone you know is 18-28 years of age and would like to visit the land of your ancestors apply for the opportunity of a lifetime. Get there early so you can collect some of the giveaways.
The parade starts at 10 AM at the Hungarian Reformed Church and ends at the American Hungarian Foundation where you can listen to several dignitaries address the crowd including the new Hungarian Consulate General, Istvan Pasztor.
Some of the wares you can find at the festival include beautiful jewelry, tee-shirts, paprika plants, smoked meats, delicious baked goods, your favorite Hungarian meals (toltott kaposzta, pecsenye, paprikas csirke, gulyasleves), decorated gingerbread (mezes kalacs), books, gifts, and so much more.
There will be music and dance performances all day long on the hour and on the half hour at the mainstage (corner of Somerset and Plum St). This year’s guest performers come from as far as Canada and Washington DC and of course, the local dance troops (Makvirag, Hungarian Scout Folk Ensemble, Csurdongolo) will perform to live music. You can listen to poetry readings recited by the children of Szechenyi Hungarian School, A Hungarian Ballad performed by the Hungarian Scouts of New Brunswick, participate in Hungarian folk games or just relax with your langos.
