Due to the Corona virus crisis, this year´s Jubilee Liberation Festival commemorating 75th Anniversary of Liberation of Pilsen and surrounding region by the US Army had to be cancelled.

  • Special Commemorative Banknotes

Besides the online programme, you will also be able to buy commemorative banknotes reminding the 75th anniversary of Liberation of Pilsen by the US Army.
