The association was formed by members of the local church choir after worship was banned in the chapel ofby the communist authorities. While the choir was joined at various points over the years by a theatre group, cinema club and library, it remained the sole constant of the association until the late 1980s, when it was joined by the vocal ensemble. Since then, it has expanded to include a handicrafts group, several choirs and other vocal ensembles, a theatre group and, in 2019, a literary club. The association currently has 80 active members and stages around 140 concerts, exhibitions and other cultural events a year.
KUD Rače has also gained something of a national (and international) profile through its seasonal concert series, inaugurated in 2002, which attract renowned artists from Slovenia and abroad.
