Celebrate all aspects of Czech heritage and culture during this year’s WestFest. Eat delicious food, watch dance and music performances by talented polka artists, and participate in the many activities the festival has to offer such as the Kolache 5K Race and the WestFest Parade through downtown. There is a carnival, an area with arts and crafts vendors, a parade of Czech cultural costumes, and even helicopter rides around the festival. Authentic Czech food options include pierogies, beer bread sandwiches, and kolaches (The biggest kolache fans can also face off in the kolache eating contest.). The festival closes with a performance by three-time Grammy Award-winning accordionist Sunny Sauceda.
