KING & QUEEN DANCE CONTEST

FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE KJT HALL

Since 1987, Johnnie I. and Margaret Krajca, have facilitated the annual National Polka Festival King and Queen Contest and this year will be one like no other. So dust off your dancing shoes and plan on competing this year.  
Couples should plan to register for the contest at the entrance of the Sokol Hall before 8:30 p.m. A Czech costume or “fancy” dancing is not a requirement for the contest, but winners will need a Czech costume for the remainder of the weekend. The “Polka Princess” contest will be held. Contestants between the ages of 6 to 10 years old are eligible and must have their parents or guardian’s consent. Registration will be held at the entrance of the hall and you must sign-up before 8:30 p.m. A Czech costume is required for the winner who will participate in the weekend festivities. It’s “Polka Time”! So, come “Czech” out what’s happening in Ennis, Texas Memorial Weekend!

CZECH DANCE HALLS

SATURDAY & SUNDAY AT KJT HALL, KC HALL, and SOKOL HALLS

Texas Dance Halls date back to the 19th century, when Czech and German immigrants came to Texas.  They built halls that served as entertainment centers for weddings, celebrations, public Polka dances and meetings.

Today, the KJT Hall, KC Hall and Sokol Halls still continue to host many events and is still the heart of the Czech community and is the perfect setting for National Polka Festival.  

Join us for traditional Czech Food, Czech customs, Pivo (beer) dancing and so much more in our three spacious air-conditioned Czech Halls (KJT, KC, and Sokol).
