The Harvest Procession (Szureti Felvonulas) is a traditional event as part of the Budapest Wine Festival in the Buda Castle. The procession is a beautiful showcase of Hungarian folk dresses, traditional Hungarian womenswear and menswear in all sorts of regions in Hungary (there are over 10 wine regions which represent themselves in the procession).
The Harvest Procession also features Hungarian folk dance shows.
In 2014 the Harvest Procession is scheduled for September 14, 2014.
