Góbéfest

This May sees the return of the UK's only free weekend festival to celebrate in riotous colour the arts, culture food and drink of the fabled-region of Transylvania.

This year’s free event again includes a family activity tent running arts and music workshops throughout the weekend, enchanting puppet shows, a makers' craft market, folk dance demonstrations, small-batch craft food sampling and many other musical and culinary delights.

Góbéfest was established in 2017 to celebrate the little-known culture and traditions of Transylvania, the Carpathian Basin and Eastern Europe. It also introduced the Székler people, a minority group of ethnic Hungarians living in Transylvania, which is part of Romania. The community led cultural festival involves Eastern European community groups from all over Greater Manchester in the planning and preparation and attracts over 10000 people from all ove the UK.
