Experience the music and dances of Poland.
The Polish Festival welcomes the honorary patronage of the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Los Angeles to our festivities this year. A representative from the Consulate will give remarks during the Official Dedication ceremony.
Put on your dancing shoes and come polka with us! Two contests - one for children and another for adults - are held on Saturday and Sunday.
Local and international groups - including Portland's Sobotka Polish Dancers - perform traditional folk dances, such as the polonez, mazurek and krakowiak.
Local bands, singers and musicians perform at the Festival each year. Listen and dance to some Polish folk, classical, rock and polka music.
Learn about Polish history and culture by stopping by a special exhibit inside the Polish Hall Library.
