Our Theme :
Our Village is Your Village

This is a special anniversary year for our culture and something our culture is particularly noted for.

Folk village culture is diverse and strong, leading to centuries of tradition. Dance is one of the most significant parts of culture and Hungarian dance is one of the richest in the world. Centuries of seclusion from western ballroom-dance influence and the uniqueness of the Hungarian language allowed traditional Hungarian music and dance to thrive in villages well into the 20th century when recording technology was already available. Century-old traditions were recorded by ethnomusicologists such as Bartok and Kodály and were made available to all of us to preserve, acquire, enjoy and interpret. Canadian-Hungarians, even after generations of separation from the main country, keep cultural traditions alive by passing them to our children and youth.
