The Hungarian American Association of Washington and the Seattle-Pécs Sister City Association cordially invite you to their Hungarian-themed Christmas Market.
Enjoy a day out in picturesque Paradise Farm discovering a true sense of outdoorsy Hungarian Christmas Market: breath in the scent of the earthy tones of nature mixed with the herbs of mulled wine, smoked meat and chimney cakes; stroll around and check out the arts and gift selections; socialize responsibly with like-minded people and get tempted by traditional Hungarian Christmas cakes, cookies and szaloncukor*.
Puget SoundZ, a famous local Hungarian band, performs a live concert.
The event features a legendary character and world class traveler, known by the fastest delivery service on Earth (and perhaps the entire universe): Santa!
*Szaloncukor, a typical Hungarikum, is a Christmas candy, used as decoration on the Christmas tree and joyously consumed by all ages leaving the empty wrapper on the tree behind disguised as if it still has candy.
