Polish Fest

200 North Harbor Drive
Milwaukee, WI 53202



Polish Fest has a proud history in Milwaukee because of the strong Polish community in the area. Through the Polish Heritage Alliance and Polish Center of Wisconsin Polish Fest become the largest Polish festival in America and the Polish community is constantly growing. While Polish Fest is one weekend a year there are plenty of opportunities to experience Polish culture year round. Below you can learn more about the history of our great festival. Also you can learn how to get involved with the Polish community today!


One of the greatest gifts we can give the young people of today is a deep knowledge of their ethnic heritage. Without this historical awareness, our children will not develop a full appreciation for the richness and diversity that is their cultural legacy.

Polish Heritage Alliance, Inc recognizes the importance of preserving the culture of Poland and passing this tradition on to our children. As a result, Polish Fest was developed in 1982.

Polish Fest represents a living example of the arts, culture and tradition that is uniquely Polish.

Polish Fest is our children’s glimpse into their heritage and our grandparent’s nostalgic walk through their past. And just as important, visitors of different ethnic backgrounds gain a new understanding of Poland and its people.
