Twin Cities Polish Festival

The Twin Cities Polish Festival is a non-profit organization created to bring a world-class celebration of Polish culture and heritage to the Twin Cities. It also helps promote various community-service and Polish-American organizations.

The Twin Cities Polish Festival will immerse Minnesotans and visitors in "all things Polish", presenting a kaleidoscope of unique cultural and educational displays, food and top-notch entertainment.

Bring a blanket, take a seat on the lawn along the Old Main Street in Minneapolis, visit with friends, watch outstanding musical and dance entertainment, enjoy traditional foods and beverages, and just simply have fun!

You'll see for yourself why Poland has earned itself the reputation as one of the World's most hospitable cultures.
