Cultural Events

Polish Fest is proud to offer a variety of cultural events that give attendees a chance to experience all different aspects of Polish tradition and spirit. Whether your family history is deeply rooted in Polish Culture or you are new to Polish customs, join us in exploring the proud Polish Culture. You can learn more about Polish Culture through cooking events, Polish forums with local historians, folk art demonstrations and much more.

All year long the Polish Center of Wisconsin offers a variety of events. 


2018 Cultural Village Exhibits


The 2017 Cultural Village will feature folk artists demonstrating traditional Polish crafts, including wycinanki (paper cutting), pisanki (decorated eggs), wianki (floral head wreaths) and more.  The Polish sheepdogs, rabbits and chickens will also return.  

Polish Fest will celebrate this Tadeusz Kosciuszko’s 200th birthday anniversary with a special exhibit.  

An exhibit featuring Polish aviators (borrowed from the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Chicago) will also be on display.

The Maly Sklep (“little store”) with Polish food and other goodies and Polanki’s sales tent featuring handmade Polish pottery (Boleslawiec), Christmas ornaments, recipe books and other folk art are both located in the Cultural Village.  

The Polish Genealogical Society and the Milwaukee County Genealogical Society will again be at Polish Fest in a new location, east of the demonstrator tent.
