Convention Schedule of Events

Join the Slovenian Union of America at their National Convention to be held at the Chicago Naperville Marriott and The Slovenian Catholic Center in Lemont. You do not need to be a member to attend.

Attend any part of the National Convention and you will feel like you are in Slovenia without ever leaving the country. During those four days you can hear the Slovenian language, music, taste foods, learn crafts, see a traditional costume fashion show, learn about the honey bees, enter your potica in a contest, purchase unique Slovenian novelties, attend a private performance of the Lippanzan Horses, Polka Dance lessons, a Banquet with a Murder Mystery featuring Slovenian famous play writer Evald Flisar and a very talented band for dancing. Attend mass at the grotto in Lemont, an Art Show, and enjoy a picnic on the hill in Lemont. Why would you want to miss this one time opportunity?

Can’t attend all four days?  No worries! You can attend the pieces you wish to. A highlight will truly be the Banquet on Saturday night. For $50 you will receive a Slovenian meal, live music, and participate in a Murder Mystery (Slovenian themed) and meet the Slovenian Ambassador, H.E. Dr. Božo Cerar . We have kept all costs at a bare minimum to make this affordable for everyone and their families.  It’s not too late to be a part of this exciting time.
