BC Polish Festival

May 28 @ 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT


Port Coquitlam’s 16th annual Polish Cultural and Heritage day will take place in a new location this year, at the new Port Coquitlam Recreation Center Plaza. Look for red and white flags, upbeat Polish folk and pop music and the smell of pierogies and sausage wafting through downtown Port Coquitlam!  

The festivities are organized as usual by the Polonez Tri-City Polish Association under the new leadership of President McLaren and Vice-President Mazurek and the long-term membership which has been active in Port Coquitlam for 30 years. Last year’s festival attracted larger crowds than ever before, and this year’s will be organized in a larger area to better accommodate our visitors and allow more room for eating and viewing.

The entire event is free and has an abundance of entertaining performances, great food, polish beer and fun for all ages. There will be plenty of  delicious food such as pierogies, bbq sausages, hunter’s stew, potato pancakes, ham hocks and famous Polish cakes & pastries. Parents will be able to enjoy some Polish Beer while children can participate in folk art workshops. The artistic program will run continuously from 1pm until 7:30 pm and will  include Polish Folk Dance ensembles in beautiful costumes, the White Eagle Band from Victoria, and many talented soloists. At 7:30pm there is an outdoor dance party that will continue until 9:00pm. There are also vendors selling arts, crafts, jewelry & much more at the marketplace. Our raffle prizes are bountiful and well-stocked with items from these local vendors.

Globetrotters might be interested to learn about the city that we are featuring this year, Zakopane, which is a very beautiful and well-known travel location. 

ZapraszamyWe welcome you all  to join us in this day of cultural celebration.”
