Welcome to the
European Stone Festival 2024 in Budapest, Hungary
Thank you for taking an interest in the European Stone Festival, the meeting place for stonemasons and stone carvers from all over Europe.
What is the European Stone Festival?
From 25 to 26 May 2024, we will be welcoming over 120 young stonemasons and stone carvers from all over the world to Budapest where they will have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and creativity to a wide audience.
Since the festival took place for the first time at the end of the nineties in Freiburg, it has become an annual event and been hosted by a variety of European countries.

The theme for the festival in 2024
The theme for the festival in 2024 is Decorative stone element, sculptures and ornaments for the 120-year-old Hungarian Parlament Building
The Promenade in front of the Hungarian Parlament is the ideal setting for such an international carving festival as the city is closely linked to the art of stonemasonry and stone carving.
Following 2004, this will be the third time that Hungary is host to the international festival.
Attractions for visitors to the festival
In addition to the opportunity to see the participants carving at close quarters, a wide variety of art and stonework will be presented, including demonstrations, exhibitions and supervised hands-on activities for both children and adults as well as a varied supporting programme.
