Let us introduce you to our Society – The Dalmatian Cultural Society Inc or Dalmatinsko Kulturno Drustvo Inc, has been around for over 90 years and is filled with Friends, Fun, and Laughter.

The Club was formed to promote and preserve our Croatian Culture and heritage. Our Society caters not only to the Croatian Dalmatian Community in New Zealand but all of the people from the states that made up the former Yugoslavia. Our society welcomes everybody to celebrate our people and heritage from the Dalmatian coast of Croatia.

We celebrate our culture and traditions through food, events, folklore, and language classes.

 

Our museum collects and preserves important records and memorabilia, to pass on to our future generations. We enjoy frequent concerts and events, which showcase our members, both young and old, sharing and celebrating our language and traditional dances

Ladies Group

In July 1999 a group of ladies met at the Society�s clubrooms to discuss the need for a Ladies Group. It was decided that the main objective was to �Foster friendship amongst the ladies of the community through regular afternoon teas with guest speakers at the Society and to have the occasional bus trip.�
From then on the ladies have enjoyed a variety of occasions. These are usually conducted on the last Sunday of the month, although Club commitments have meant that this is not always the case.

are a special interest group belonging to our parent organization, the Dalmatian Cultural Society Inc.
We were originally set up back in 1989 for the express purpose of preserving the history of our settlers in New Zealand. With the rapid passing of many of the early pioneers, it was essential that we tapped into the memory bank of those who were still with us and who could pass on accounts of the early pioneering days. It was also important that we should collect and preserve artifacts, memorabilia and records before they were irretrievably lost.
