National Polka Festival
The National Polka Festival invites everyone to come help celebrate Czech heritage festivities annually on Memorial Day Weekend. Offering an abundance of activities to be enjoyed by the entire family in a small city atmosphere, the festival kicks off with an opening dance Friday evening, featuring polka music and the King and Queen Dance Contest where everyone is encouraged to wear traditional Czech kroj (costumes). The 10:00 am parade filled with floats, bands, and colorful costumes will kick-off the downtown festivities Saturday morning.
You'll enjoy a weekend of polka dancing, Czech foods, and 15 sensational LIVE polka bands (including Grammy Award Winning Brave Combo) at our spacious air conditioned halls ( KJT, Sokol and SPJST) and in downtown Ennis. So come experience our traditions, religious customs, dancing, tastes, sights, sounds, and "a little bit of the Czech Lands". For more information call 972-878-4748.

Full schedule of events will be announced soon.
