Advent Feast at the Basilica – 5 years in a row

This year we are organizing the Advent Feast at the Basilica for the fifth time on Saint Stephen’s Square. We are very proud that this Advent fair can revive the ambience, the lights, the scents and the community-forming power of the Christmas preparations.

Since the beginning our main goal has been to form a lovely communal space by the careful pick of vendors and an exciting programme selection. Here it is nice to meet friends and colleagues, to have some rest during the Christmas rush, and every moment is a new experience.


You can find a huge selection of handcraft goods, gifts, food and drinks at our vendors’ kiosks – most of whom are a returning participant of our feast. Check out the list of our vendors here!

Street Food

From Sas Street to Széchenyi Street the coolest Hungarian food trucks and street food vendors will be present such as Zing Burger, KolBice, BudDog, Paneer, MexKitchen, Balkán Grill, Befaló Bill, DiVino and Korhely.

Light painting

Visitors may admire the largest and most spectacular visual attraction of Budapest: enchanting Christmas-themed 3D short films projected on the Basilica’s facade every day.


You can enjoy great programs and activities at the Advent Feast every day.

Children can skate around our opern-air skating rink with a huge Christmas tree free of charge. We are also offering a playhouse and animators to look after them.

The Basilica’s facade will be decorated with spectacular light painting animation matching the spirit of the holiday season and we are offering many different cultural events as well.
