The Polish Festival will be held in August at Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids. There will be cooking demonstrations, a Polish dance group, non-stop music (primarily polkas) children’s activities on Saturday, a Busia contest on Sunday, famously delicious Polish food and a beer tent featuring Polish beer. Our festival is free to attend and open to the public. We are proud of our heritage and would love for anyone to come out and experience our fun-filled festival. There will be Polish merchandise available for purchase including beautiful Polish pottery, amber jewelry, Polish glass, Polish baked goods, and a variety of T-shirts. The food is made from scratch and freshly prepared on site. The Polish Heritage Society of Grand Rapids uses part of the proceeds from the festival to award students of Polish descent scholarships to Grand Valley State College, Aquinas, Grand Rapids Community College and Davenport. Na zdrowie!
