Friday, October 27 – Sunday, October 29 – Flatonia, Texas

Czhilispiel  is a celebration of Flatonia’s Czech and German heritage. The name comes from a play on the word “Chili” with a “z” added for a Czech flair + the German word “speil” meaning play. This festival has been going on since 1973 making this Flatonia’s 44th time hosting the event. Proceeds are used to help with local needs. The event is held every year on the fourth full weekend of October.

The event includes a Czhilin, Beans & BBQ Cook Off. Jackpot Margarita contest for the adult Czhili competitors. Other events include an auction, 5K, golf tournament, car & truck show, and lots of children games. The organizers will be announcing more events  soon so keep checking the link below.
