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 once again.
“We saw many members and received lots of thanks,” said Patty Anderson, New Prague Branch Manager. “We look forward to this parade each year. It’s a great opportunity to thank our members and to support the community.”
