CALDWELL, Texas (KBTX) - Caldwell celebrates its Czech heritage and the iconic pastry the kolache during the 36th Annual Kolache Festival.

In 2020, the Kolache Festival was canceled due to the pandemic, so event organizers say this year’s festival was very important to the community and local economy.

“[The Kolache Festival is] bringing community back. bringing everybody back downtown shopping and doing what we do, what we love to do,” said Susan Mott, Executive Director with the Burleson County Chamber of Commerce. “So it’s a huge boost to the economy of not only Caldwell but as well as the surrounding cities.”

Over 10,000 people attended the festival. Mott said she was happy with the turnout.
