“Good wine needs no bush!” -holds the proverb. The organizers of the Keszthely Wine Festival have believed from the very beginning that it does. The success of the event helps a lot to introduce and popularize the wines of Zala and Hungary year after year. These five days are a real celebration of wine in Keszthely.

The founders and organisers of the thirty-second Keszthely Wine Festival still consider the promotion of the wines of Zala producers as their main goal, so most of the wine houses are located in the county. Every year, the programme of the event is enriched by a number of cultural and entertainment events. Every day, wine lovers will be invited to the Wine Street stage for an exciting programme of events, with children’s activities in the afternoons and live music concerts in the evenings, which will continue to entertain the public in 2024. Delicious tastes and gastronomic specialities are an unmissable part of the event. In front of the entrance to the Wine Street – in the Craft Street – there will be a spectacular craft fair, also featuring local and regional artists.
