The Traditional Arts Fair 2023 will be back on the 19th November.
Buda will showcase traditional arts, cooking and gardening in as many and varied forms as possible, in the spirit of the Leviny daughters.

Handcrafted ice cream, coffee, Buda special gourmet BBQ, Devonshire teas, the bar, music and children’s activities will all make for a fantastic day.
Three stages will be running with free demonstrations all day, along with individual demonstrations on each stall and a special guest artist in residence. Also new to the fair this year is gold panning for kids and adults. Learn from an expert and have fun finding some gold!
