XVI. Budapest Oldtimer Show 9-11 of April 2021 Budapest, Hungarian Railway History Park

Oldtimer Show Kft. started organizing the 2021 Oldtimer Show with high hopes! The organizers and Hungary are waiting for the spring sun rays of 2021 to bring us back the freedom of everyday life.

The Oldtimer Show in Budapest will be held for the 16th time. The site will once again be the Hungarian Railway History Park, with an area enlarged for 10 acres.

Opening hours: Fridays from 12:00 to 18:00, Saturday and Sunday from 09:00 to 18:00.

Antique cars and motorbikes, known as trademarks of the Oldtimer Show, will continue to be on display this year. The Hungarian audience can finally see the world’s first hybrid car: the 1916 Woods-Stanley electric-petrol-powered, wooden-wheeled giant car.

For the first time in front of the public, the Relic Carriage carrying St. Stephen’s crown will be presented at the OldtimerShow. The vehicle, which is extremely impressive, will be presented on track 28 of the locomotive-circular heating house. Of course, next to the gilded vehicle, crown guards dressed in ornamental hungarian costume will stand guard.

In the outer areas of the large park, we’re exhibiting U.S. big cars. Once again there will be caravan exhibition and terrain rally racing cars. The“Food-TruckCaravan” in the asphalted main street will be a novelty in the field of hospitality. In the spirit of traditionalism, there will again be a “Backyard and Craft Fair “.  From the producers you will be able to buy directly the home made sausages, cheese, honey, jam, spices, etc… There will be freshly baked chimney cakes, craft beer, wine and “pálinka”. In the chop house, situated in Water Tower Park, you will be able to buy also pork-toting dishes, along with many other home-cooked dishes: stuffed cabbage, fried sausage, ham etc…

The smaller park will hold again traditional attractions. In the Békéscsaba country house, you can also taste the real Csabai sausage. In front of the country house will be exhibited old production tools: corn crumbler, grinder, pumpkin peeler, butter churning, etc… Visitors can try out these tools! Children can feed the animals in the paddocks, with corn crumbled by themselves. In our three paddocks, we will have 30 types of animals, including cute pets: dwarf goat, mini piglet, bunny, and chicken. They can be petted, and feed by children.

Also in the Water Tower Park will be the youngsters  favourite, the “Sport and Tuning Car Exhibition”. Here you will find a lot of extra vehicles, with a wide range of styles, from tuning cars to Formula Racing cars. Of course, there will be also “retro tuning” cars! In the tuning car section, HELL energy drinks will be offered by pretty pit-girls, and children will be able to return home with a gift plush animal.J We hope to be able to set up the Ferris wheels in this year, from which you can see the exhibition area from a bird’s-eye view.

The grassy-wooded area after the entrance 2 will, as usual, be furnished by traditionalist military forces. Here there will be veteran military vehicles, an old weapons show, a military camp and military demonstrations every day at 2:00 p.m.

As a family-friendly event, there will be plenty of free games for children: airsoft shooting, archery, craftsmanship, face painting, petting zoo, bungee jumping, and firefighting imitation – all free! There will be also a model car exhibition in the Orient, a railway model exhibition, a terrain table exhibition and a playground in the large park.

The adult visitors, in addition to the oldtimer cars and engines exhibited in the locomotive-circuit heating house, can also meet oldtimers in many other places in the park areas: USA cars, hotrods, buses, trucks, tractors, stable engines. There will be free of charge for the tryout of the rotating locomotives in the big park. All interactive programs of the Railway History Park will be in operation: horse railway, rail car, manual railway, garden railway and we will heat up a real steam train again.
