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, MN.
The 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.
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 – which Heartland was a proud participant in.
“This annual festival is a great way for Heartland to get out into the community and show our support,” said Kathy Harrington, Heartland President. "Since opening our New Prague branch, only a year ago, we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response from the community. We’re excited to be providing New Prague, and surrounding communities, a money-saving alternative to “traditional” banking."
