Croats from Dusnok came to that area in 16th century from Slavonia. They speak Štokavian dialect of Croatian language, a Slavonian subdialect (Old-Shtokavian with non-reflected yat pronunciation). Similar dialectal features are seen today among population of Gradište near Županja (in western Syrmia) and around town of Našice in central eastern Slavonia (both in northeastern Croatia).
These Croats belong to special group of Danubian Croats: they call themselves as Raci. In literature they are also called racki Hrvati.
Dusnok Croats' feasts are Veliko racko prelo ., Racki Duhovi or Racke Pinkusde (since 1993. ), Ivanjdan, August 20th and Berbena svečanost (Harvest celebration).
