Flower Carnival — The most recognized event of Debrecen
Several sights are waiting for guests of Campus Hotel Debrecen.
The largest event in summer is the Flower Carnival. In every August Debrecen bursts into flower on the festive day of Saint Stephen, the founder of the Hungarian state and the new bread as well. The Flower Carnival traces back to the 1910s when a spectacular flower promenade attracted visitors on the main street of the town.
At Debrecen's Flower Carnival, a unique event in Europe compositions made of approx. 150-180 thousand spears of flowers and natural materials illustrating scenes or works of Hungarian everyday life, history or arts process across the city. Flower cars are accompanied by Hungarian and foreign dance ensembles, music bands and art groups who entertain the audience of the Flower Carnival.
Among the marching groups usually there are special and exotic guests such as Japanese or Israeli dancers and the Italian Flag Player Group. The procession of the Flower Carnival is traditionally led by Debrecen Majorette Ensemble and Youth Brass Band awarded at multiple festivals. The Flower Carnival starts in the morning of August 20 from Petőfi Square and crossing the city arrives to the Great Forest Stadium, where a jury consisting of well-known characters of public life and artists evaluate participants of the Flower Carnival, both compositions and performances.
Besides preserving traditional elements of the Flower Carnival program, such as "Gerundium" Competition and Carnival Race, there are new events every year and yet the Carnival isn't concentrated on a single day. The Flower Carnival is preceded by the several cultural events of the Carnival Week: concerts, theatre plays and dance performances that offer entertainment and leisure also to guest of Campus Hotel. In the evening of August 20 traditionally fireworks and street party closes the Flower Carnival of Debrecen.
