Czech and Slovak Newsletter - March 2013

VodaFest 2013

With weather very much resembling the inaugural VodaFest two years ago, nearly twice as many people gathered to celebrate Czech and Slovak heritage in Australia. Czech beer, delicious meals and deserts, and a dozen of local artists, collectors and musicians made the day very special. A huge Thank You goes out to all visitors, performers, volunteers, festival partners and countrymen associations that made the event possible and successful once again! Make sure to check out the gallery at our website and like us on Facebook!

With a large Czech and Slovak "drop in the sea" on the front and the logo on the back, these come in six sizes and are going fast! If you didn't get one directly at the festival, you still have a chance to purchase VodaFest t-shirts in our online store at
