Hungarian Harvest Dance, 2018

The Hungarian Settlement will celebrate 122 years of its existence with the Hungarian Harvest Dance Celebration on Saturday, September 29, 2018 at the American Legion Hall on Hwy. 43 near Springfield.

Doors open at 5:00 pm and the program will begin at 6:00 p.m. 
Hungarian folk songs will be performed as well as the traditional Hungarian Harvest Dance.

The dancers, dressed in traditional attire, that include white dresses and outfits trimmed in red, white, and green, will perform a series of dances that come from different parts of Hungary. This has been a tradition in Hungarian Settlement for over 120 years. The dancers will perform beneath a canopy of fruit and streamers of red, white, and green, the colors of the Hungarian flag. 

There will be a wine auction, which proceeds will benefit the continuance of the Hungarian culture of the community.

Hungarian food, such as cabbage rolls, cabbage noodles, cucumber salad, and kolbász (a type of Hungarian sausage), will be available for sale at the Harvest Dance Celebration. Plus, Hungarian pastries, such as kiflik and kalács will be sold.
Before and after the Harvest Dance performance, Ernest Breaux and his Poo-Yai Jamm Band will entertain the crowd.
Information for ticket sales will be made available soon.


As many of you know, our association building was flooded in mid-August of 2016. We are so grateful for all of the donations that are making it possible for us to restore our building. We are especially grateful to the Hungarian Human Rights Foundation who coordinated a worldwide fundraising campaign for us, not once, but twice! We would also like to thank the Hungarian Initiatives Foundation who raised funds for us.
