VodaFest 2013 in 3 weeks


This year's headliner is Miss Vendulka Wichta, a Czech-origin finalist of the 2012 X-Factor singing competition. Special guest is the Polish dance ensemble Polonez. We're going to introduce new talents, too, and a unique dance performance by the Slovak Social Club "Ludovit Stur"'s Liptar dance group.

Think that Nigella Lawson is overrated? Bored with watching “My Kitchen Rules” on TV? Think you are better than the contestants on Masterchef? Then have a go at competing in our “BABOVKA BAKEOFF” !

Never heard of a “Babovka”?

A Babovka is a traditional cake of the Central Europe. In other countries it is also known as gugelhupf, marble cake, pound cake, kuglof, babka or wacka. It may contain chocolate or coconut or poppy seeds. It is baked in a special circular pan originally made of pottery. Deceptively simple, it is an art to get the babovka light and fluffy.

This week full of celebrations is an opportunity for all communities living in Melbourne share their cultures, religion and language and to celebrate the benefits multicultural society brings to Victoria. Multicultural events, festivals, concerts and fundraising dinners will be held at various locations in Melbourne during this week. We are glad that Vodafest - Czech and Slovak festival will be one of them.
