In traditional village society, the harvest period was linked to a special day, from St Michael’s Day to St Simon-Judas Day. The harvest has always meant more than just work, it was and still is a celebration, as the vine-grower is confronted with the fruits of a whole year’s labour.
On 16 October, the folk dancers of the Guliba troupe will create a joyful harvest atmosphere for children and families with dancing feet and a willingness to dance. Folk games include a visit to the Badacsony vineyard, the garden of the grumpy bunch and a real harvest party.
At the handicraft session you can make a chanterelle and a felt wine bottle, and the Görömbő Kompánia will present an interactive music and dance show for children and families.
The round table discussion will explore the theme of viticulture and winemaking, with a strong emphasis on environmental awareness. There will be talks on organic winemaking, the full use of grape by-products, organic grape seed oil production and the use of grapes for cosmetics.
A gastronomic presentation will give an insight into the traditional ways of preparing harvest dishes, while the evening dance evening will include a harvest food and drink tasting.
The craft activities are based on the principle of equal access. Complex accessibility is provided for people with mobility, hearing, visual and intellectual disabilities.
