Letter From Director

It is with the hard work and dedication of the many volunteers that we were able to put on this 3-day event to over 35,000 fest-goers and a media outreach of over 1.2 million people to promote understanding and appreciation of our Polish heritage. I am thankful and proud of all the volunteers, chairpersons, Polish Fest Managing Committee, Polish Heritage Alliance Board of Directors, and the Team Members of the Polish Center of Wisconsin for the support, effort and dedication to make Polish Fest a success. We all should be proud of the wonderful event that we host each year in Milwaukee that showcases the arts, culture, and tradition that is uniquely Polish.

Thanks again to Janine Adamczyk, entertainment chair , the 5 stages of entertainment had a great mix to please everyone. We not only had a variety of bands but dancers, magicians and of course the Chopin Youth Piano Competition and the Polish Fest Pageants.  

Thank you goes to Jane Jonietz Deacon Bill Banach on a great job as chairs of the mass committee and Fr. Aron Laskiewicz.  The chosen charity,  Dominican Sister St. Ann Rest Home was very thankful for the donation.

I also want to thank the Capuchins' for hosting their Run-Walk For The Hungry  with us in 2018. Everyone seemed to have had a great time.

I would also like to thank our sponsors for without their financial support we would not be able to put on our festival- so please utilize their goods and services when you can and help show them our support.
