Polish Festival is a family Celebration with authentic cuisine,
dancing and music. It is the largest Polish event
in the Northwest and the best kept secret of Portland and Oregon.
It began several years ago as Polish dinner at St. Stanislaus Church.
This year over 10,000 people are expected
to be in attendance for this festive two day event.
- Authentic Polish Cuisine
- Non-stop Central European folk performances
- Games for children
- Polka Contest
- Variety of exhibits in two historical Polish buildings
- Beer garden
During the festival, we provide non-stop stage
performances, including six dance groups, polka contest, a street dance, ten booths
serving authentic Polish cuisine, a full-course Polish dinner and a
variety of other exhibits of our Polish heritage. The event is held on
Failing Street between the two historic buildings of St. Stanislaus Church
built in 1907 and the Polish Library built in 1911, both located
on N. Interstate Avenue in Portland Oregon.
Over 200 volunteers, organized by St. Stanislaus Parish and
Polish Library, have contributed their time to make the Polish
Festival a celebration for children and adults.
