Continuing the legacy and rich tradition of CFU's forefathers, the Society works to promote and preserve the beautiful Croatian culture. From the special ordered mannequins dressed in authentic Croatian folklore costumes (hrvatskih narodnih nošnji) on display in the Bernard M. Luketich Croatian Cultural Museum to the establishment of the junior and adult tamburitza festivals, CFU strives to connect and educate Members about the Homeland.

Cultural initiatives include: Annual CFU Cultural Tour of the US and Canada highlighting a renown Croatian tamburitza orchestra; the presentation of LADO – the Croatian National Folk Ensemble; the hosting of the Zagrebački Folklore Ensemble; presentation of the most renowned entertainers and vocalists in Croatia including Krunoslav Kićo Slabinac, Vera Svoboda, Šima Jovanovac, and Marta Nikolin; a Croatian language program; the inclusion of the Croatian language pages in the Zajedničar; seminars on Croatian folk dance and music; CFU-hosted tamburitza festivals; and the on-going support of the junior and adult tamburitza ensembles.
