Share the excitement of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics with us by learning about the Czech Olympic Team and its individual athletes' medals.

Join us for a fun-filled day of live music, a beer garden and food, activities for kids and participants in the spirit of the Olympics.
During the day, the folk band Orchester Praževica will perform traditional European Czardas and Gypsy swing, influenced by jazz and blues. Children from American Sokol Washington, DC will present their gymnastic talents. Also, DC Wheels will provide tips and tricks for skateboarding, one of the newest sports of the Olympics.
