Hody, which literally means the Feasts, is an annual traditional celebration held between May to November throughout the Czech and Slovak Republics. This year, NCSML is offering several opportunities to celebrate Czech and Slovak culture by partnering with Czech Village restaurants, visiting world-class musicians, and offering free admission on Sunday, July 17 to celebrate 10 years since the grand opening of our current elevated and expanded Museum and Library.
All programming is free during Hody 2022, but a freewill donation is suggested so that future NCSML events and programming can continue! Thank you to our programming sponsors Sharon Curtis of Winter Garden, FL and GreatAmerica.
We are also partnering with Catherine McAuley Center during this weekend as a collection point for a canned food drive and other essential supplies. They play an important role in our community offering educational and supportive services that promote stability, skill-building, and connections for immigrants, refugees, and women experiencing crisis.
