Ander z Kosic in Australia

Friday, 27 April 2012 (All day)
Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Sydney VIC

After the visit of two Slovak folk dance groups from Vojvodina earlier this year, just a few weeks after the Slovak band IMT Smile's East coast mini-tour, and a number of successful concerts of the Czech singer Lenka Filipova, get ready for yet another performer to tour Australia!

Great fun in a unique Slovak show with the legendary folk cabaret star, anecdote-teller and humorist Ander z Kosic, accompanied by the singers duo Sarm. To find the performance closest to you, here's the full tour itinerary:

After the second instance of the now traditional European Beer Fest, which took place just last weekend, Koliba is heading your way with another event, the Pork Festival "Zabijacka"! Czech beer at $6 a pint, pork specials on offer throughout the weekend and live music each night.

Most importantly, though -- on Saturday, 14. April, Koliba opens at noon to start a whole pig on a spit going for you for later that night! You know you don't want to miss that!

The Australian Slovaks' Association in Victoria invite you to the Easter craft workshop with Morena offering parade. Come along and try one of the traditional techniques of egg decorating, Easter whip weaving or try to make a figure of the Slavic goddess and join the Morena offering parade . An egg and spoon race of family teams is also on program.

Entry fee is $5 per person, $10 per family. Bring eggs or egg shells to decorate and an Easter themed food platter to share. Tea, coffee and cordial will be provided.

VodaFest 2012

With more luck weather-wise this time, in whopping 38°C,  people were enjoying themselves with a glass of cold Czech beer in one hand and a delicious meal or dessert in the other. The streamlined program full of amazing performers on one stage, extended beer selection, covered beer garden area and outsourced parking management all contributed to the true festival atmosphere.
