Great Polish music with dancing

Featuring everything from dance to music to food, and this year photography. Photographer Stainlaw Wiktacy displayed his works that showcase the reflection of human character in self-portraits. As well, the Agineszka Holland Display, which is composed of film set photography was on exhibit at St. Casimir’s Church Hall,

Food-wise, the cuisine includes offerings from Roncesvalles’ renowned restaurants as well as kiosks of traditional Polish fare, including pierogi, kielbasa, bigos, cabbage rolls and much more!

With two midway areas for kids, six stages which will provide entertainment, and two beverage gardens to wash down all the traditional Polish fare, such as cabbage rolls and kielbasa, there is definitely something for everyone at this popular festival.

“With over 300,000 people expected to attend this year’s festival, parking was very challenging but was well worth the effort. Saturday featured a polka party that had people dancing under the stars. There was a free screening of the Polish language film Bogowie (with English subtitles) that was shown at the iconic Revue Cinema.
