TEXA-KOLO 2021 is an historic hybrid partnership. There will be electricity in the air as we gather live, on-site at the Croatian American Cultural Center in San Francisco, plus electronically over Zoom. Zoom participants will be able to view selected parts of the on-site program, and we will project portions of the Zoom program in the on-site Kafana.
The John Filcich Kolo Festival board is committed to ensuring a safe on-site environment while still preserving the most precious elements of the festival. Please read our COVID protocols.
