Come be Czech for a day!

30th Annual Kolache Festival - Sat., Sept. 13, 2014  

 

 

The Kolache Festival is an annual celebration of the revitalization of Czech heritage... a county that was basically a Czech settlement realized their precious identity was slipping away. New generations knew not the language, the music or the art of their ancestors. Not only do we grasp at the past, but we hurry to share the history...to bring into today's focus the beauty, talent, and delight of the Czech people.

 

Come to the Kolache Festival and learn the wonderful Czech philosophy. See the technique of quilting, woodcraft, carving, sculpturing. Dance to the polka, and sing the songs of the musician. Taste the true ethnic food and lend your soul to the fulfillment of the Czech cultural heritage.

 

Always the second Saturday in September!

Kolache, the original Czech wedding pastry, is a favorite national dessert throughout Czechoslovakia. The art of baking Kolache came with the early immigrants to Burleson County. Bakers have competed for 29 years to win the coveted title of Grand Champion.
