Without our members, sponsors, and other supporters, we would not be where we are today. We have made it our mission to ensure that the culture, people, and histories are celebrated, embraced, and shared — your support helps us accomplish that mission.

Calendar of Events

We strive to provide informative, engaging, and most importantly – FUN events to the Cedar Rapids area. Our events focus mainly on the history of the Czech and Slovak people, with hands on workshops, informative history lessons, and exhibit opening receptions.
