Wine & Jazz Days
August 1, 2019 @ 10:00 am – August 4, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Good wine and good music, nourishment for the body and soul!
Since 2015 Debrecen’s Great Forest has been home to a festival of Wine and Jazz. This year, once again the event has grown even bigger, with between 60-70 family-owned wineries from around Hungary, a growth of around 20% on last year. In addition at the time of writing, 40 jazz bands have committed to the event (for a full list see the bottom of this article).
Originally two separate events, Wine and Jazz Days is the combination of the fifteen-year-old Debrecen Wine Festival and the forty-three-year-old Debrecen Jazz Days. The combination provides the perfect heady mix, taking place in the ideal location with the backdrop of the Great Forest.
On Saturday, the 3rd day of the event, the “Kéknyúl” band headlines the Jazz on the Fórum Színpad stage.
On Sunday, the fourth day, probably the busiest day, the “Young Musician of the Year” and “JazzFed Quartet” from the Hungarian Jazz Federation take to the “Jazzma Stage” as does the Debrecen Dixiland Jazz Band feat. István Gyárfás who take to the “Playground stage”.
The event is perfect for the whole family, while the kids play at the Froggy playground, parents play too!
