Traditional annual Czech & Slovak Festival took place on Sunday May 26th in Astoria, Queens. Due to inclement weather on May 25th the program of the Festival had to be condensed into one day only. Nevertheless, the visitors enjoyed plenty of Czech and Slovak food, drinks and cultural performances during the course of the day.
Festival was jointly opened by Consul General of the Czech Republic, Mr. Martin Dvorak, and by Consul General of the Slovak Republic, Ms. Jana Trnovcova, who both in their respective speeches appreciated very close ties and cooperation between the Czech and Slovak communities in New York.
