The Valley of Arts Festival is the oldest among the major festivals of Hungary as it was started in 1989 with the aim of promoting Kapolcs region's cultural and economic values. Its original aim is the commitment to promote quality, cultural values, local ties in a friendly atmosphere. Thanks to the festival’s long history, the Valley of the Arts has become and grown into a real cultural brand.
The centre of the valley is the village called Kapolcs. This village’s sites are all show venues and invites visitors to unique artistic experiences: improvised theater shows, handicraft workshops, folk dance or concerts, among other.
The 2020 edition has been cancelled. The next festival will be from 23 July to 1 August 2021.
