Ninth Annual Polish Festival
The Houston Polish Festival is a celebration of the food, music, language, customs and culture of the Polish people. Traditional Polish food such as pierogi (stuffed dumplings), golabki (cabbage rolls), bigos (hunter's stew) and kielbasa (sausage) as well as a huge assortment of traditional cakes and desserts will be available.
Enjoy live Polish music all day on the main stage presented by local artists and musical groups from the parish. 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 the 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.
