Croatian Exhibit to Debut at Farm Labor & Agriculture Museum

The History of Tulare County Farm Labor & Agriculture Museum will debut a next exhibit on November 3 – Diligence Grown from Strong Roots: Honoring Croatian Experiences in Tulare County.

The public is invited to attend a reception to honor the opening of the new exhibit from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the museum, located inside of Mooney Grove Park in Visalia. Admission to the park and museum is free.

The museum has collaborated with members of the local Croatian community to create a display that will tell the story of the influence that this community has had on Tulare County.  

Photographs and artifacts from local Croatian families aim to showcase the Croatian culture, which includes a wide variety of elements such as widespread participation in the table grape industry, musical instruments and strong family ties.  

The exhibit opening program will include: traditional music played by a live Tamburica band and brief talks by community members featured in the accompanying video produced by Tulare County Office of Education.  Deli meats, cheeses, and pastries, provided by A1 Imports of San Pedro and Biljana Koncevski, will be available for tasting during the event.
