SpringFest 2013

The Sunday after Easter, April 7, celebrate with us at the SPJST Lodge #88, 1435 Beall Street at 15th Street in the Heights area of Houston.

The annual CHS-HCC SpringFest will once again bring to you traditional Czech song, dance, crafts, and delights to the palate.

The Wallachian Ensemble group "Radhost" will transport you to enjoyment of the traditional entertainment of the mountains of Moravia. Artist Frantiska Snopkova brings you the folk art of the region with her handmade corn husk figures. For your listening and dancing pleasure, Kovanda's Czech Band and the Texas Legacy Czech Band will play throughout the day.

Registration opens at 11 am. A traditional Czech Sunday dinner will be catered by Ben's Chuck Wagon.

The Country Store features kolaches and other homemade preserves and delicacies, as well as treasured artifacts. The very large Silent Auction offers a variety of items to tempt you bidding, and the Plant Booth can fill your yard and garden with old favorites and even Czech vegetable plants. Cultural exhibits and a variety of vendors, plus children's games to keep the kiddies happy, will round out your festival day.
