The Bukovina Székely Festival was held June 20–21, 2008 in the village of Tevel in Hungary’s Tolna County. The event, organized for the 14th time by the National Bukovina Székely Association, included photo exhibition, traditonal crafts market, ethnographic exhibition and release of a book of Bukovina Recipes. A traditional wedding was staged – with 1500 ’wedding guests’– members of some 25 folk dance and folk singing groups from communities of Bukovina Székely people from several regions of Hungary. [Bukovina is a region located today partially in Northeastern Transylvania/partially in the Ukraine. The Székely Hungarians were expelled from the region in 1941 then transported and resettled eventually in Hungary]. Report by Fehér Attila and Péter László.
