Ősagárd is a tiny village in Nógrád County, in Mt. Cserhát, that is 50 km from Budapest. According to the researches by the local people, the village was named after the local sighthound breeders and owners. One proof is the prancing sighthounds in the coat of arms of the village. Magyar Agár was pronounced to national treasure and symbol of Hungary by the Parliement. The Sighthound Festival in Ősagárd is the result of the cooperation of Magyar Versenyagár Egyesület (Hungarian Racing Sighthound Association) and Élő Nemzeti Kincseink Alapítvány (Living National Treasures Foundation). The plan is to repeat the festival each and every summer. We dreamt about a real festival with a fair storm, handicraft, flea market, Goulash soup, strapačky, beer tent, good cheer and all day programs for free. Initial program is the pageant in costumes in which the costumes match the origin of the sighthound breed (Hungarian, English, Scottish, Irish, Polish, Italian, Arabic, Spanish and Russian). Pageant is for the horsemen and their horse and the 9 native Hungarian breeds as well. In the meanwhile, presenters following each other on the stage: acting company, performers of the Interoperetta, musical and operetta hits, opera items, folk dance, dog craftwork performances and selecting best sighthound of the day. Day terminates with a light music concert.
