Visegrad  Group PDX Festival

 (Strona sie uaktualnia)

November 9, 2013

From 1pm-7pm @ Polish Hall

Visegrad Group PDX was founded in the spring of 2013.  Our newly formed alliance comprised of the Czech, Polish and Hungarian Saturday schools works to promote Central European cultures in Portland.

Purpose: To integrate Czech, Polish and Hungarian cultures into the broader community while providing access to the rich heritage and history of these nations to Multnomah County residents. With our project we acknowledge the mission of the European Visegrad Group founded in 1991 with the idea of mutual support of Poland, former Czechoslovakia, and Hungary in the transition period from the totalitarian regime towards the democratic societies.

Festival Idea:

To celebrate the 95th anniversary of independence of the Czech, Polish and Hungarian nations this fall, we share our traditions, history, arts & crafts, as well as national food with our neighbors in Portland.
