In line with its past practice, this year again the Alpiq Csepel Group sponsors the Champagne and Wine Festival of Budafok, the 28th such event held on 2 and 3 September 2017.

The event is very popular each year, for example, last year over 50 thousand people visited the festivity.

In addition to the wine and champagne makers located in Budafok, there are also other wine growing regions of Hungary represented at the event: from Tokaj, Szekszárd and the Balaton Upland, a number of well-known producers offer their excellent wines, as well as champagne and grape-juice products.

This year there is a remarkable selection of programmes: on four thematic stages in total over 50 concerts will be held for the audience. Visitors can enjoy excellent wines at the Wine Yard in the atmosphere of "wreck" pubs, and can listen to concerts of musical groups known from various festivities; at the Champagne Square they can find champagne specialties, hear concerts for children and pop music stars; those who prefer lighter drinks can go to the "Fröccs" Terrace and enjoy wine mixed with soda water while exploring the relation between "fröccs" drinking and jazz music; and the Marketplace offers folk music and world music to enthusiasts.
In the centre of the festivity square there is a Children Park under the shadow of trees with a number of exciting games for the youngest generation; and Magdolna Street paved with cobble stones is an exhibition area with historical atmosphere for industrial and visual artists living at Budafok.

Not many people are aware that one of the biggest system of cellars in Europe is in District XXII of Budapest, and there are a number of wineries located in the cellars. Those wineries also offer interesting programmes to visitors.
