For almost 20 years the Croatian American Cultural Center has annually showcased the best tamburitza music in California and presented nationally renowned tamburitza orchestras. The tambura tradition has been part of San Franisco history since at least 1902. On Sunday 2/19/17 of President's Day weekend; the San Francisco Bay Area is filled with singing, dancing, and the music of the tamburitza. For a day the the Croatian American Cultural Center reverberates with a rich tapestry of tambura music both traditional and contemporary. The ensembles perform for listening, play dance tunes, polkas and waltzes and kolo dances, and sing Becar tunes until the bar closes late at night. The upcoming TamFest features Serena Tamburitza Orchesta. All members of the orchestra have been inducted into the Tamburtiza Hall of Fame. They are the first and only all female orchestra to receive this honor. Also playing will be Sidro Tamburitza Orchestra, Slavonian Traveling Band, and St Anthony's Tamburica Orchestra.
