Budapest in Montreal

Hungarian Cultural Week
Are you ready to discover Hungary in Montreal?
There are already many links between Quebec and Hungary: Montreal received Hungarian immigrants and refugees at different times, Montreal was the centre where Hungarians fleeing communism arrived in 1956.
This year represents a great opportunity to revive and strengthen relations. The 60th anniversary of the Revolution of 1956 provides us an opportunity to look back and pay homage to the individual achievements of Hungarian Canadians who contributed to a great extent to the success and prosperity of Canada that we see today.
There will be several concerts and exhibitions, a movie festival in two cinemas during the week. There will also be opportunities to learn about Hungarian gastronomy and handcrafts. Local Hungarian artists will also showcase their talent.
The events of the Hungarian Cultural Week are sponsored by the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and Freedom Fight 60th Anniversary Memorial Board.  www.budapestinmontreal.ca
