The Polish American Family Festival and Country Fair at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa is a five-day celebration of family, fun, and heritage! Attracting over 25,000 visitors a year, our festival is the region’s largest Polish American festival. At the festival, guests enjoy a variety of amusement rides, the exciting “Little Circus” show, and continuous live entertainment on two outdoor stages. The festival showcases award-winning polka and disco polo bands as well as Polish folk dance groups from across the United States and Canada. A much-anticipated part of the festival is the performance of the Polish American String Band in their Mummers costumes on the second Sunday of the festival.
Visitors to the festival witness demonstrations by historical re-enactors of the seventeenth century Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (known as the Banner of Jasna Gora) and the World War II Living History group, daily shows of Polish traditions, and a crafters’ village. One of the most delicious ways to enjoy Polish culture is to sample the wide variety of Polish cuisine available for purchase. The festival menu includes smoked and grilled kielbasa, pierogi, potato pancakes (placki), stuffed cabbage rolls (gołąbki), pastries, and Polish beer. Festival favorites such as funnel cake, hot dogs, chicken fingers, and water ice are also available. Since 2018, a new feature at the festival has been our Polish Vodka Tasting experience.
The Polish American Family Festival and Country Fair in Doylestown has been bringing people from the East Coast together to celebrate Polish heritage and culture for over fifty years! The festival provides an opportunity to celebrate Polish and Polish American pride while also helping to raise funds for the Shrine. We hope you’ll join us!
These businesses and organizations have given generously to ensure the continuing success of the Polish American Festival, a living tradition here in Doylestown, Pa.
