In the past decade the Croatian American Cultural Center has annually showcased the best tamburitza* music in California and presented nationally renowned tamburitza orchestras.
On President's Day weekend each February; the Center is filled with singing, dancing, and the music of the tamburitza. For two days the hall reverberates with a rich tapestry of tambura music both traditional and contemporary. The ensembles perform for listening, play dance tunes, polkas and waltzes and circle dances, and sing Becar tunes until the bar closes late at night. This year's headliners are the Veseli Tamburitzans, from Cleveland, Ohio. Also performing are , Westwind International Dance Ensemble, Blue Adriatic Tamburitza Orchestra, Eszterlanc Hungarian Dance Ensemble, Slavonian Traveling Band, and Novi Stari Tamburasi with the Dalmacijo Singers.
