Polish Harvest Festival 2012

This weekend


When I went a couple of years ago one day was a Slavic Cultures Festival, too, and there were Croat, Czech and Ukrainian booths in addition to Polish. I had some good home-made Ukrainian food and pastries but the website only mentions Polish food. I hope there's something other than Polonia to sample.

Modest entrance fee, free parking, not much of a traffic hassle; the only problem will be if it rains and the vacant lot where you park is muddy, I guess. It's right down the street from Polonia.

I think I'm going to try to go on Friday.

    We went to the spring Polish Festival held in the same location. The ladies of the church did the cooking. The pierogis were very good. The menu was limited to a few items. It's not a large church.

      Well that would be fine with me. I'm just not too keen on paying an admission fee to stand in line and get the same food I could get at the restaurant. When I went a couple of years ago the Polonia booth was by far the busiest.

        Speaking of Polonia, the store and restaurant, for any of you that are not familiar with them, they do a terrific job. We often stop by that store for sausages, cheeses, sweets and treats. Their sauerkraut is particularly wonderful - nothing like the canned stuff you buy at the supermarket.

        In addition to the food, they usually have a small but nice selection of handicrafts; in particular, holiday items. I'll be going by there soon to see what they've got out for Christmas, and every Spring, I buy a few of their hand-painted wooden eggs for our Easter table centerpiece.
