Get your “Polish” on at the Annual Polish Fest on May 4 and 5 at the Copernicus Center, 5216 W. Lawrence Ave. in Jefferson Park.
Chicago’s first outdoor festival of the season has something for all ages… Polish food favorites like pierogi, potato pancakes and kielbasa; an array of imported beer; special activities just for kids, and non-stop, live music on both indoor and outdoor stages. Rain or shine this festival is always rocking!
With over a dozen bands, this year’s exciting, ‘world music’ line-up includes pop, rock, folk, reggae, jazz, local tribute bands and, of course, polka!
Plus families can visit the “Krakus Kids Stage” with live children’s theater, music, magic, balloon-twisting, face-painting and other fun entertainment for the youngest guests!
Polish Fest also offers traditional folk dance and music performances, free Polish cooking classes, and a Festival Marketplace where you can shop for old-world treasures.
This annual festival held over Polish MayFest weekend commemorates Polish Constitution Day – the signing of the first democratic constitution in Europe. And with over one million Polish-Americans residing in the Chicagoland area, this festival is always a huge celebration!
