Why is this date & location
so special?

According to historical sources it was Tarcal where, in 1100, the Hungarian king Coloman the Learned declared a law prohibiting the persecution of strigae - vampires or mares - because they "do not exist".

In an old Hungarian tradition countryside lads would set up a maypole decorated with ribbons at the gate of the chosen lass's house to let her know their feelings.

Mother's Day is close! This celebration goes back to ancient Greece. Last year, we celebrated this day on the Witchy Weekend. This year, it's still very close.

This weekend is connected to:

Folk culture

Folk beliefs and customs from Hungarian folklore.

Tokaji wine

At the central point of each of the program components there stands the biggest treasure Tarcal has: wine.

Womanhood

The whole weekend is connected to fertility, womanhood, beauty.
