National Polka Festival Ennis is one of the best music festivals in Texas

National Polka Festival Ennis, Texas

History of the Ennis Polka Festival had beginning of the National Polka Festival in Ennis, Texas began as a dream. Raymond Zapletal, Len Gehrig, and Joe Liska of Ennis had been to other cities and seen the large response to polka bands from the people of Czechoslovakian descent, and they believed the people could be brought to their small town of Ennis for the same reasons. So in 1967, Zapletal, Gehrig, and Liska brought their dream to the Chamber of Commerce manager Jack McKay.
// < ![CDATA[

// < ![CDATA[
//
If the idea were to succeed, it would require the joint effort of the Chamber and the citizens of Ennis. Jack McKay agreed the idea could greatly benefit Ennis and the Czechoslovakian community in the area, and one of the largest polka festival in the country had its’ beginning. Zapletal, Gehrig, and Liska agreed to take care of getting the bands for Ennis’ fraternal halls and the Chamber agreed in turn to organize the parade and downtown festivities. Within three years the festival was a raging success with as many as 30,000 people attending from all over the country to enjoy music and entertainment at the four halls.

Our festival continues in tradition and style similar to those early celebrations. The founders and their successors have insisted on maintaining the authenticity and values of the Czech tradition even today. All entries of the parade, street dancing, and bands performing must have Czech themes and play Czech music. The festival has taken years of work from the Polka Festival Committee, Chamber of Commerce, and the Ennis Convention & Visitors Bureau.. But thanks to the work of these people, this festival today is the largest of it’s kind in the United States attracting as many as 50,000 people , still has the feel of “a little bit of old Czechoslovakia”. Ennis is a very unique city in that it has three beautiful fraternal halls. The Czech citizens of Ennis support them. They hold many functions such as weddings, dances, anniversaries, meetings, banquets, and festivals. They are a huge part of the National Polka Festival in Ennis, Texas.

 

Friday Night – King and Queen Dance Contest
The 47th Annual National Polka Festival kicks off with an opening dance Friday at 7:00 pm at KC Hall, featuring polka music and the King and Queen Dance Contest, where participants and non-participants are encouraged to wear traditional Czech Krotj (costumes) and dance the night away.
The Queen’s and King’s Dance Dance Revolution Contest was introduced into The National Polka Festival in 1987 by life-long Ennis residents, Johnnie I. and Margaret Krajca, and has proved to be one of the most popular features of the National Polka Festival.
