promises good food, good entertainment and fun for all who attend. Join us

located at 3730 Auburn Boulevard (one block east of Watt & Auburn & I-80) to
celebrate the lively, festive traditions of the Croatian people. The
Extravaganza, launched in 1982, is a tribute to Croatians everywhere who
have made their mark in the arts, civic, political and professional arenas.

Highlighting the entertainment is popular recording star, Zlatko Pejakovic
and Maja Zupanovic, of Croatia, Mate Caric and Petra Tulic from Los Angeles,
and Sacramento's own D.J. by Mario.

In addition, some of Croatia's most beautiful folk dances will be performed
by Sacramento's own children folklore dancing group "Kolibrici" and by
visiting folklore groups "Hrvatska Ruza" from New York, and "Koraci" from
San Jose.

The Croatian American Cultural Center extends a warm welcome to all and
promises a very enjoyable celebration that is made special each year by the
mingling of many cultures during the course of the weekend. Bring the whole
family for a delicious barbeque dinner and a variety of other delicious
Croatian Cuisine and pastries in our large park-like setting. Our bar
features fine wine and imported and domestic beers, as well as a variety of
specialty drinks. Children's games, including a three-story slide, will be
