History and teachings
Valley of Arts is a unique cultural event series in the picturesque setting of Kapolcs and its environs.
An inimitable milieu of yards, nooks of valleys, streets and village houses. Entering a gate, you can bump into an improvised theatre show, a handicraft workshop, a roast, swirling folk dancers or a concert, embraced in a familiar atmosphere, peace and the colours of Hungarian culture. The largest arts festival of Hungary awaits guests with cca. 500 programs, hundreds of artists and dozens of venues for 10 days. The event is hosted by Kapolcs, Vigántpetend, and Taliándörögd.
The Valley of Arts was the very first all-arts festival and has grown to become the largest ever – in 2021 the 30th anniversary festival is organised. The cream of the Hungarian cultural scene performs on different stages or just beside the campfire. Valley visitors do not only see performances and concerts, but also get close to the souls of their favourite artists as they live with the locals for 10 days. Time stops in the Valley for a while. A special world can be experienced here where art and human relationships are the most important, where one can break away from everyday life, become part of a huge community, and feel the freedom and power of arts.
