The whole area is a well-known place thanks to its cultural traditions and customs with Strani not being an exception. The pre-Lent and Mardi Grass (carnival) festivities (the German word is Fasching, thus the local people call it Faschank) and the Strání parish feast (called in the local dialect “hody”) range among the essential events held in the municipality. In addition, many other events are organised having both local importance – such as “The Trip to a Fairy Tale” organised for children or the “March of Parents with Children” - and international significance – for example – “The Javorina Festival” where top Czech and Slovak politicians meet each other. The New Year´s Eve walk across the White Carpathians ended by lighting the Friendship Bonfire at the square in Strání has become a tradition as well.
