Polish Festival 2015

Bringing a Taste of Poland to Melbourne

Poles constitute one of Australia's oldest ethnic communities – one early representative, explorer Paul Strzeleczki, climbed and named our tallest mountain after his hero, General Tadeusz Kosciuszko, who himself spent much of his life outside Poland helping the Americans win the War of Independence. Whether in snowy Chicago or sunny Melbourne, Poles have gone on to form an integral part of the colourful patchwork that makes today's multicultural cities so exciting and interesting to live in.

It's not surprising that Polish people have come to Australia: the two nations have much in common. Poles love a beer and a snag – known in Poland as piwo and kielbasa – and, like Australians, have a proud history of fighting for freedom against tremendous odds.

The Polish Festival @ Federation Square, held on the third Sunday of every November, celebrates these shared qualities and aims to give Melburnians a tantalising taste of that distant country whom it often parallels. Hearty food and cold beverages are certainly on the agenda – not to mention some decadent pleasures of the sugary variety – as well as hours of dancing and musical performances, a huge range of unique merchandise, and even special entertainment for the kids to make sure grown-ups aren't the only ones having fun.
