There’s a festival almost every month from March through November. (I’m still looking for June and July.)

Czech/Polish/Polka Festivals in Texas
It seems like each year about this time my mouth starts watering for steak and wine. Actually, I seem to yearn for them earlier and earlier each year. Last years’ Steak & Grape was good but very crowded.
This year, the Texas Steak and Grape Festival celebrates it 4th anniversary, June 18-19. They also have a spiffy new (WordPress) Web site, and I think the City of Bryan is sponsoring it; they’re hosting the site.
I may be out of town that week so I don’t know if I’ll make it to the festival. I’ll just have to have some steak and grapes in honor of the festival somewhere else.

Come be Czech for a day! 25th Annual Kolache Festival – Saturday, September 12, 2009
The Kolache Festival is a celebration of the revitalization of Czech heritage… a county that was basically a Czech settlement realized their precious identity was slipping away. New generations knew not the language, the music or the art of their ancestors. Not only do we grasp at the past, but we hurry to share the history…to bring into today’s focus the beauty, talent, and delight of the Czech people.
Come to the Kolache Festival and learn the wonderful Czech philosophy. See the technique of stenciling, basket weaving, egg decorating, quilting, woodcraft, carving, sculpturing. Dance to the polka, and sing the songs of the musician. Taste the true ethnic food and lend your soul to the fulfillment of the Czech cultural heritage.
It’s that time of year again. Now that kids are out of school and people are looking for things to do with the family it’s time to drink wine and eat steak.
This year it is the third annual Texas Reds Steak & Grape Festival. The main events happen June 20.
Last year’s events were good by Bryan standards. It was hot, humid and not much more to do than sample wine and eat meat.
Only in Texas (well maybe elsewhere too) do they celebrate the Steak and the Grape – at one setting. What more could a Texan ask for – fine cut of beef and a fine wine to wash it down.
This is the second annual Texas Red’s Steak and Grape Festival and it promises to be fine time of wine and cooked cow.
