Czech and Slovak Newsletter - March 2012

Dear friend,

Welcome to the March issue of your newsletter, which is just one of the activities of the VodaFest-Czech and Slovak Association, the main one being the Czech and Slovak Festival that took place a few weeks ago.

In this issue:

  • VodaFest 2012
  • Easter Craft Workshop at Sumava
  • Easter Dinner Dance at Laverton
  • Pork Festival "Zabijacka" at Koliba
  • Ander z Kosic in Australia

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. A huge Thank You goes out to over 300 paying visitors, 60 performers, 50 volunteers, countless children, festival partners and countrymen associations that made the event possible and successful once again!
