FAQ

What is Győrkids Festival?
The downtown of Győr is becoming an enormous playground on the first weekend of every July, from 6 to 8 July this year, organized by Vaskakas Puppet Theatre. Győrkids Festival is the biggest free open-air children’s festival of the country, where Győrkids can participate in every programme, be it a performance or even a jumping castle, for free in return for showing a smiling photograph.
On Friday, the first night of the three-day event, after the opening concerts, the mayor of the city of Győr is going to hand over the key of the city to the children at a formal ceremony with fireworks, which signifies the beginning of Győrkids Games at various venues such as Széchenyi tér, Kazinczy utca, Király utca, Várágyúk and Radó-sziget, on Saturday and Sunday, from morning till evening.
