Góbéfest is the UK's only free weekend long family festival to celebrate the music, dance, culture, food and drink of the legendary region of Transylvania and the Carpathian basin.

Main stage acts promise to span every genre and draw from across the Carpathian Basin, Eastern and Central Europe. Expect to hear a rich variety of live music from traditional folk to classical sounds, opera, speed folk, ska folk, gypsy music and more.

Visitors to the festival will be able to taste a range of delicacies and delights, such as Lángos, Kürtőskalács, Pálinka whilst admiring an array of arts and gift stalls.

The event also features a family activity tent providing hands on workshops in music, arts and crafts folk dance demonstrations, story telling and more.


Góbéfest was established in 2017 to celebrate the little known culture and traditions of the Szekler people - a minority group of ethnic Hungarians living in Transylvania, which is part of Romania. A "Góbé" is a friendly word for a crafty Szekler.
