"Come Home to Bechyn!"

Czech Heritage Festival


Sponsored by St. Mary's Preservation Association of Bechyn

St. Mary's Preservation Committee is pleased to announce that Mollie B will be our headliner at the 2019 Festival!  Mollie's performance at last year's festival was simply amazing.  She has a marvelous connection with audience. Mollie B is host of the Mollie B Polka Party and POLKA. Mollie has won the title of "Favorite Female Vocalist" award numerous times, from both the United States Polka Association and the International Polka Association.


Additional afternoon entertainment will be Matt Hodek and the Dakota Dutchmen from Lankin, North Dakota! In keeping with tradition, The Sleepy Eye Area Concertina Club, will also be providing listening music of the highest quality.  Our Bechyn Czech Folk dancers enjoy performing and sharing the dances they have learned with all who attend our festival.  They will present their 26 annual performance at this year's festival.


The festival is enjoyed by all ages.  There are games and housenka (caterpillar) rides for the children, quilt raffle, farmers market, handcrafted souviners, silent auction, Bingo and kolache!  Delicious ethnic foods served throughout the day will guarantee you won't be going home hungry!


Please join us on August 11, 2019, for a great day with family and friends!  Bechyn is located 10 miles northeast of Redwood Falls, Minnesota.
