Each year Detroit’s Croatian community gathers to celebrate “CroFest”, an evening of Croatian food, drinks, music, dancing and tradition. 

Croatian Folklore Ensemble “Nova Nada”, the host group, has invited the Detroit Tamburitza Orchestra, the Detroit Star Junior Tamburitzans, Zumberčani Tamburitzans from Cleveland, Ohio and the Malina Czech Dancers from Auburn Hills, Michigan to present a colorful concert of song and dance. 

The festivities take place this Saturday, March 5th at Carpathia Hall, 38000 Utica Road in Sterling Heights, Michigan. Doors open at 5:30pm and the concert begins at 7:00pm. 

After the concert “Zadnja Stanica” from Steelton, Pennsylvania, will keep the dance floor jumping by playing traditional and modern Croatian music.

“This year we will honor our Ukrainian friends as a special show of our support for the horrible struggles they face, while keeping their intense pride burning! Croatians know all too well what it is like to try to survive these horrors. At the beginning of the program, we will have a special guest performance by the Echoes of Ukraine. Come join us for this beautiful tribute to the Ukrainian people. In addition, donations will be graciously accepted to help support Ukraine and its people,” organisers said.
