The Slovak Ball 2023


The Slovak-American Cultural Center cordially invites you to the event of the year -- The 29th Annual Slovak Ball -- on Saturday, February 11, 2023, @7pm EST, at The Royal Manor in Garfield, New Jersey!


This year we celebrate Slovakia past and present with a special tribute to modern interpretations of folk music!


Renowned Slovak singer, choreographer, and "folklorista" Štefan Štec joins us in person to captivate guests with both modern and traditional renditions of Slovak and Rusyn folk songs. In 2018, Štefan released his debut album entitled "Poletiv by'm na kraj svita," for which he received a double platinum record. We are honored to host this unique and charismatic young performer!


Cocktail hour begins at 7pm, followed by a sit-down, multi-course dinner, dancing, and featured entertainment.


Premium Open Bar all evening until 1am.


Live music with dancing until 2am.


Enjoy our famous Slovak Ball Raffle with incredible prizes. Past prizes include a weekend getaway to the Hamptons, roundtrip airline tickets to Europe, tickets to the Metropolitan Opera, dinner at the Residence of the Ambassador of the Slovak Republic to the U.S., private tour and luncheon at the United Nations with the Permanent Representative of Slovakia to the United Nations, and many more!
