Are you fascinated by the flats? Do you want to reach out to a community of people that share in your fascination? We would love to hear from you!

Do you have stories about growing up on the flats or have relatives that have told you stories? We are currently collecting daily life and family stories about life on the Bohemian Flats and the immigrant experience. Do you love to research? Are you captivated by recreating history through census information and historical photos? Please contact Susannah Dodge at

Would you like to join our planning board? We currently have 5 main focus areas of our festival planning process: Art, History, Music, Branding and Development. If you are interested in any of these areas or feel you can contribute to make our festival a success, please contact

Are you an Artist? Are you inspired by the immigrant experience? Do you deal with sense of loss of culture, strength through diversity, alienation, or culture conflicts in your art?

Are you a musician? The festival features a full line-up of immigrant- and Bohemian- inspired music. After the festival is over, we host a 'Bohemian Fest Eve' fundraising show at a West Bank Music Venue. Please contact Ross Gabrick at
