Festival guests will be able to explore the culture of Slovenia through an extensive display of folk attire, crafts and presentations in the SNPJ Slovenian Heritage Center museum. Families and children alike will appreciate swimming in the Olympic-size pool, fishing in the lake, enjoying a round of miniature golf, playing on the playground equipment, and attending the annual Miss SNPJ Pageant to witness the crowning of a new Miss SNPJ.
