About New Prague, MN

A Tradition of Progress

Established as a village in 1877, New Prague is a growing community located 45 miles southwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul. Anton Philipp, a Bavarian, was the first settler to come to New Prague in 1856. Philipp built the first log cabin on the south bank of what came to be known as Philipp’s Creek. A few months later Albert Vrtis, a Bohemian, joined Philipp’s settlement. To this day, the cultural heritage of German/Bohemian ancestry is proudly revered in New Prague. One of New Prague’s best known festivals—The Dozinky Festival—is patterned after the Czech original. On the third Saturday of each September, the town shuts down most of the downtown portion of Main Street to make host for people, food, games, a noon parade, and other fun. On the eve of the festival, New Prague has a classic and hot-rod car show/drive. Car enthusiasts come to show off their vehicles in a parade of cars on Main Street, and there is an alumni softball and volleyball tournament in the evening.
