In the United States, it is common to find local celebrations of Czech and Slovak heritage. Festivals provide a unique opportunity to wear traditional folk attire, dance to music, learn about traditional arts and crafts, eat great food, and mingle with others. This year was particularly special as we recognized the centennial anniversary of Czech independence. Members of Western get involved in these events every year! We detail highlights of the festivals in this article.
