The Hungarian Festival is a one-day event held the first Saturday of June in Fifth Ward in New Brunswick, New Jersey. It is a "daylong celebration of Hungarian culture, music, dance, [and] art". The festival is a street fair celebrating Hungarian culture, organized each year by the Hungarian Civic Association. Food available includes töltött káposzta, kolbász, pecsenye, and gulyásleves. 2006 was the 33rd festival and it commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Hungarian revolution.
Many Hungarian-Americans who grew up or started families in the Hub City have since moved to the suburbs, but the festival, a daylong celebration of Hungarian culture, music, dance, art -- and yes, food -- remains.
Somogyi will be among the thousands expected to line Somerset Street from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday for the 34th annual Hungarian Festival. The festival is expected to feature folk dance performances and cultural programs every hour. ... The event, sponsored by the Hungarian Civic Association, also will have food, vendors, exhibits, music, folk art, crafts, games, a gift shop, a fencing demonstration and a concert at the Museum of American Hungarian Foundation courtyard.
