Magyar Marketing Newsletter #132

August 2017

Welcome!  Isten Hozott!

Recently we attended the Gulyás Festival in Chicago and the Hungarian picnic in Ligonier, Pennsylvania hosted by the Bethlen Home. Both of these events provided a great opportunity for wonderful Hungarian food, lively folk dancing, a chance to hear the Hungarian language, and an opportunity to connect with others with Hungarian heritage. We had a lot of great conversations with folks who were interested in Hungary’s border changes, easily seen on our exclusive map of pre-Trianon Hungary with the outline of Hungary’s current borders. This is great for the person in your life who is into genealogy, ancestry, history, or anything Hungarian. Check it out here!

Are you looking for an opportunity to celebrate your Hungarian heritage? There are a number of events coming up – be sure to spread the word to family and friends in these areas: Lorain OH, Toledo OH, Virginia-Washington DC area, Fairfield CT, Hiram OH, Parma OH, Linden NJ, Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada, Wallingford CT, Woodbridge NJ, Chicago IL, Atlanta GA, and Sarasota FL. Take a look at our Hungarian Events Page as new opportunities are added all the time!

When we were preparing for our trip to Transylvania, someone had mentioned to me to be sure I tasted Csíki Sör. I wasn’t familiar with Csíki Sör or the story and struggle behind the beer but I soon learned that Heineken was working hard to overrun the little guy. Check out this article that discusses the challenges and the good that has come from the struggle.

And please support your local Hungarian businesses, clubs, and churches in the U.S.A. and Canada! They work hard to keep Hungarian traditions alive and give back to the community in so many ways!

September 27, 2017 is the date for the opening of the Hungarian museum in Árpádhon, Louisiana! You may remember that my husband, Don, and I had the opportunity to visit Árpádhon last fall and it was well underway! Preserving history is such a labor of love and we are privileged to have Hungarian museums in Cleveland OH and New Brunswick NJ and soon in Louisiana! Are there other Hungarian museums that you are aware of that I have overlooked? If so, please let me know via email at and check out this article about what is happening down south!
