Traditional Polish songs will be performed by the church’s youth and adult choirs throughout the day and several musical and dance performances will be presented by the parish’s Polish folk troupe, Wawel.
As part of the festival, visitors will be able to tour our beautiful church constructed in the traditional Polish style. Those touring the church will be able to see the Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Polish Black Madonna, and learn of Our Lady’s 600 year old history as protector and defender of the Polish nation. In addition, the festival provides a supervised, safe and fun children’s area complete with games, face painting, kids’ snacks, bungee jump and other fun activities to keep the kids entertained. Inside the beautifully decorated new parish hall, visitors will find a silent auction full of unique items on which to bid. Polish souvenirs and memorabilia, Polish pottery, and festival t-shirts will be available at the festival. The entire parish community extends an invitation for everyone to come and celebrate all things Polish.
