This is what the Savaria Historical Carnival, the largest community event of Szombathely is about. About traditions, transmission of heritage and continuous story-telling…When - in the frame of a costumed historical game - the common heritage, knowledge and the passion are inherited from father to son, which is the main idea of the Carnival. On the initiative of the New Pilgrimage project, the range of the existing festival locations had extended by a new and major one: shows of military tradition-preserving groups, concerts in the church, guided night walks in the cemetery, illumination of the church on the life of St. Martin and historical family playground took place on the square in front of the renewed church built upon the birthplace of the saint the last weekend of August.
