The Order of the Sash

Festivals that focus on ethnic or cultural topics, such as polka festivals, seek to inform community members of their traditions. The Texas polka festival (all of them) has long been a highlight of the year for many folks in these communities. To highlight this event, at some festivals, it has been a tradition for a King and Queen title to be bestowed upon the winner of a dance contest held at the festival. The winners are presented decorated sashes and crowns designed to draw attention to the polka dance culture when they attend other functions throughout the year as required.
