The City of Buda is hosting the 38th Annual Budafest Saturday, December 2 and Sunday, December 3, 2017. Budafest began as a small festival in Downtown Buda to showcase local artist/craft vendors and quickly grew to what it is today. Successfully run for 15 years by Eileen Conley, later partnering with Bert Bronaugh and Elaine Purvis, the event grew to host 75+ vendors, a parade with Santa and a carnival in City Park. This year, the City of Buda has adopted Budafest and will continue to encourage the spirit that has developed over the years and recognize all the hard work that brought it to where it is today.
Budafest is the perfect event to kick-off and celebrate the holiday season with your family and friends. This festival is FREE and open to the public. Activities include craft vendors, food, kids' activities, Santa's Artisan Workshop, a lighted holiday parade with downtown lighting ceremony, a "reindog" parade, snow slide, carnival, and more! The library will be closed during Budafest but you can join the Buda Public Library as well as other organizations in fun, free activities on the library lawn. Children can make ornaments, write letters, take photos at our photo booth, enjoy festive storytimes, and discovered other fun holiday activities all in one area.
At Budafest, event parking is free to all festival attendees! Lots can be found at:
