Dozinky Days

Snap Fitness stage, 130 Main Street W., New Prague, MN

Visit New Prague's Fall Harvest Festival on September 22nd, 2018!

Dožínky® (doe-shink'-key), a Czech Harvest Festival patterned after the "Old Country" original, is held on the third Saturday of September each year in New Prague.

Our city's beautiful Main Street is transformed into an open-air market with vendor booths lining the sidewalks and a beer garden featuring authentic Czech beer. You can sample tasty treats including traditional Czech dishes. Food booths and events open at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. Main Street will be closed to through traffic, making your strolling safer and visiting more pleasant.

No carry-in alcohol, dogs, bikes or golf carts are allowed.

The Dožínky® Festival in the Czech Republic is celebrated annually to give thanks for the bountiful harvest. Similarly, New Prague honors its agricultural roots with the Parade of Farm Pride at noon with a line-up of antique and modern farm equipment, cars, bands and horse-drawn units.

Both children and adults will enjoy the special events planned for the day, including many demonstrators and entertainers. Ethnic bands on three separate stages will keep the crowd tapping their feet non-stop.

Be sure to stop by the Czech Heritage Village and the Czech Heritage Club. Authentic Czech dancers and singers will also share their talents; the New Prague Czech Singers will delight the crowd, and peruse authentic Czech merchandise.
