Come help celebrate 55 years of Czech heritage and traditions Friday through Sunday, May 27 – 29, 2022.  Held every year on Memorial Day weekend, the National Polka Festival offers an abundance of activities to be enjoyed by the entire family in a small town atmosphere. 

The festival kicks off with an opening dance on Friday featuring polka music and the King and Queen Dance Contest, where participants and non-participants are encouraged to wear traditional Czech kroje (folk costumes).

On Saturday morning, decorated floats, bands, and colorful costumes kick off the downtown festivities with a giant parade that twists through historic downtown Ennis.  Then experience our traditions, religious customs, dancing, taste, sights, sounds, and "a little bit of the Czech Lands" on Saturday and Sunday at our three spacious air-conditioned halls (KJT, Sokol, and SPJST), and in downtown Ennis.

Enjoy a weekend of polka dancing with 15 live polka bands including Grammy Award winning Brave Combo, and a Saturday night Country Concert:
