St. Wenceslas Celebrations 2021

The last September weekend in Český Krumlov traditionally belongs to events celebrating the coming autumn – the 20th St. Wenceslas Celebrations and 21st International Folklore Festival will take place in the town between 24 and 28 September. 

This is homage to St. Wenceslas, patron of Bohemia but also of the town of Český Krumlov, of winemakers, beer brewers as well as celebration of state holiday of the Czech Republic. There will be traditional events and many new additions too. 

In addition to being the patron saint of the lands of Bohemia, Saint Wenceslas is the patron saint of brewers and winemakers, which is commemorated by the traditional autumn festivities offering a cultural as well as a rich gourmet experience. The pleasant atmosphere of the autumn festivities is augmented by the festival of folk ensembles and the Saint Wenceslas Fair. The cherry on top is certainly the unforgettable evening excursion to the town’s museums and galleries, garnished with an impressive accompanying programme.
