All over the world are very famous Čataj´s embroidered blouses and table-clothes, one of them on the table of the Pope Johannes Paulus II.
Čataj´s embroiderers meet for their common embroiderying every Tuesday in the Cultural House.

There are two musical subjects - brass-band "Čatajanka" and folk-band "Farkašovci". Both play abroad, too. Folk-group "Tulipán" is also successful.

Very typical and rich in manycoloured and complex and silver embroidery is an unique and beautiful woman garb in this region, which is to be seen only by previous announcement, later in the prepared Čataj´s room. It is a very interesting and extraordinarily expressive attraction that you can not see elsewhere. It is used by a local folk-group at its perfomances.

A hunter association does training and competitive shooting regularly. The Municipal Office arranges a meeting with citizens on the New Year´s Eve where are invited all persons interested from Slovakia and from foreign countries, too.
