There are plenty of sausage, wine and pálinka festivals in Budapest, so here is an event for those of us with a sweet tooth. Budapest's annual Chocolate and Candy Festival promises to be a sweet culinary event that offers participants a chance to experience everything cocoa products have to offer. For four days, chocolate will be featured in all its magnificent and tasty forms in Buda Castle.
Several multinational companies, chocolate craftsmen, producers and traders from Hungary and abroad will be in attendance at Sweet Days to tempt you with their delicacies. Fruits, seeds, coffee, vanilla, various syrups, honey, fine wines and sweet drinks will accompany the chocolate and candy at the festival. There will be several kid-friendly programs to keep the little ones entertained while grown-ups can partake in chocolate-making courses and guided chocolate tasting tours or learn 'sweet' recipes and more. Evening entertainment includes musical programs and live concerts accompanied by drinks and fine wines.
