Dear Magyar Gála dancers, families and friends:

Based on the uncertainty of current COVID-19 circumstances, our organization is in an unfortunate situation where we must delay the 65th Magyar Gála, originally scheduled for February 27, 2021.

The Hungarian Veterans’ Association is continuing to seek out plausible options for hosting this beloved tradition with a minimal postponement. We are truly hoping to have the opportunity to gather together in some way to celebrate.

Please visit our website regularly and follow our social media pages for the most current updates Magyar Gála - Hungária Gála Ball on Facebook and Instagram.

In the meantime, we are still here for you, and working diligently to bring our community together this year, one way or another. We ask that you stay in touch with us, and always feel free to contact us with any questions, suggestions, or general comments.

Thank you all for your ongoing support!
Stay well,
The Hungarian Veterans’ Association
& Magyar Gála Committee
