29th Annual Polish Festival
Experience the Polish culture with your entire family! The Polish American Club of Sacramento, Inc. is hosting the 29th Annual Polish Festival. Come celebrate and learn about the Polish culture through traditional food, drink and song. This afternoon event is appropriate for all ages. Date: Saturday, September 8, 2018 Time: 12-6 pm Location: 327 Main Street, Roseville CA “The best part of the Festival is the food and entertainment,” said Bogdan Komorniczak, Co-chair for the Polish Festival. “There are no Polish Restaurants in the greater Sacramento area so the Polish Festival is the time when people can enjoy authentic Polish food while listening to traditional Polish music, performed by professional musicians.” More than 1500 people are expected to attend this year’s festival. Besides all the wonderful food and entertainment there will be several vendors on-hand selling Baltic Amber, handmade crafts, Polish souvenirs and Polish sausages.
