Bechyn Czech

Heritage Fest concert

BECHYN — The 29th annual Bechyn Czech Heritage Festival will be held as an online concert. The date remains August 9, 2020, but the event will run from 7 to 8 p.m. Watch the concert live on the Facebook page “Bechyn, Minnesota World.” Mollie B and Ted Lange will be playing favorites and taking requests while they are joined by some very special guests.

Due to federal and state recommendations with Covid-19, and the uncertainty of the next two months, we want to ensure the safety of all our guests. The digital format will allow for friends all over the world a chance to come together and celebrate Czech heritage and continue our mission of preserving our historic church in Bechyn. The 30th annual Czech Fest will return to Bechyn on August 8, 2021.
