Since the year 1952, on the first Sunday in March, it sponsors the annual
"Slovak Day" on the grounds. There is a varied attendance of 400 to 1200
depending largely on weather conditions in Florida and in other parts of the
country. Those in attendance are provided an authentic Slovak Dinner, Slovak
music and a cultural program. On this occasion one of the distinguished
members or prominent Slovak American figures is honored as the "Slovak
Man/Lady of the Year" and awarded a handsome plaque in recognition of his/her
life long dedication to Slovak culture and heritage in America. Attendants at
the Slovak Day come from all parts of the United States, Canada and Slovakia.
Slovak Garden operates a full time library and museum which is open to the
public daily, free of charge, from 8:00 A.M. until 12:30 P.M. This is the
only American-Slovak library and museum in the southern part of the United
States. This will be open during Slovak Day.
