Csardas Dancers

Welcome (‎fogadtatás)

We have been a proud participant in the International Villages Festival throughout the full year history of this event, and once again welcome all visitors to the Hungarian Village.

Sit back and enjoy a selection of lively, colourful and entertaining Hungarian music and dance presented by the Csárdás Dancers each evening, ranging from charming juniors to the fast paced and high energy performances of the Seniors. The Hungarian Hall on Albion St., has been the focal point for Hungarian immigrants who have arrived in Brantford and surrounding area for over sixty years. The club provides a variety of events throughout the year, which embrace tradition, and forge a link with our rich culture and heritage. As immigrants, and as the children and grandchildren of immigrants, we are fortunate to call Canada our home, and ‘the hall’ a place where we can stay in touch with our roots.

Enjoy wonderful Hungarian cooking including mouth-watering chicken, cabbage rolls, sausage, paprika, or parsley potatoes as well as delicious pastries, including 'Kremes' (custard slice), kifli, poppyseed and walnut rolls. Specials of the day provide additional opportunity to tantalize your tastebuds.

    Gulyás - is a meat dish halfway between a soup and a stew, made with small cubes of meat (usually beef) and flavoured with bacon, onions and paprika. It is traditionally served in a bowl and eaten with a spoon.

    "Gulyás began about 1,000 years ago when the Magyars migrated across the Great Plains. This hearty meat dish traditionally prepared in large outdoor kettles (bogrács) over open fires, easily satisfied outdoor appetites. Through the years, the popularity of Gulyás has spread to all parts of the world and has become one of the most famous Hungarian contributions to international cooking."
