About Us Purpose Activities

Hungarian American Cultural Association (HACA)

Activities

HACA is currently fund raising for the 60th Anniversary Commemoration of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution
and Freedom Fight against Communist oppression. This Hungarian fight for democracy and freedom inspired the
Czech peoples in 1968 and the Polish peoples in 1980 to fight against Communist oppression.
These activities led to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of Communism in all of Eastern Europe in 1989.

Past Activities

In 2013 HACA raised thousands of dollars to support the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.

Hungary was the featured country at the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival on 26-30 June
and 3-7 July, 2013 at the National Mall in Washington, DC. This was a unique chance to showcase
Hungary’s cultural heritage. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity for the American public in
general, and Hungarian-Americans in particular, to connect with Hungary.
