We would like to invite anyone interested in Czech culture and music to visit Ennis.
Ennis celebrates the Annual National Polka Festival on Memorial Day weekend. The festival celebrates Czech Heritage with the King and Queen contest on Friday night, a grand parade beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday followed by Czech music and Street Dancing downtown, booths featuring klobase and bar-b-que, vendors featuring Czech imports and many other interesting items. There were various musical groups and a childrens area with rides and other activities.

Remember there are three fraternal halls featured in the National Polka Fesitval in Ennis; the K.J.T. Hall located at 1216  S. Paris Street, the Knights of Columbus Hall located at 850 S, Interstate 45 Hwy, and the Sokol Hall located at 2622 E. Highway 34. During the annual Festival, you will be able to taste the flavor of Czech cuisine beginning at 11:30 a.m. followed by Czech music until the wee hours. Each hall features its own form of entertainment and everyone always has a great time. If you desire more information about attractions in Ennis please visit .
