Come Czech Us Out!
Verdigre sits in the northeast corner of Nebraska, only 12 miles from the Missouri river, and right on top of the Verdigris Creek, a tributary of the Missouri river. Verdigre is a proud farming community with a rich outdoor tradition including both hunting and fishing. Area wildlife, which is abundant, includes wild turkeys, pheasants, rabbits, squirrel, deer, raccoon, ducks, geese, and coyotes. Fishermen enjoy fishing for catfish, walleye, northern pike, crappie, perch, blue gill, bass, etc. The surrounding area is quite scenic and provides some of the most beautiful views in the state. There are plenty of areas designated for outdoor recreation including Wild Wood Acres park and the Bohemian Prairie wildlife management area. Verdigre was founded by mainly ethnic Czech-Americans, and this is evident by our celebrations, and the goods available at our local bakery. The community embraces our Czech heritage through signs and our annual celebration, Kolach Days.
Please join us in celebrating Verdigre Kolach Days the summer of 2016 from June 10-12. Some key events will be our annual Kiddie Parade, Mud Volleyball, Pool Party, Kolach Eating Contest, Sunday Parade, Poker Run, the running of our 2016 Kolach King and Queen, evening entertainment, music for all and polka dancing.
