ABOUT THE POLISH FESTIVAL
As a celebration of Polish culture in Melbourne, the Polish Festival @ Federation Square is about bringing a taste of Poland to Melbourne.
We want to ignite a little bit of the Polish in everyone who visits our festival. This is an opportunity for people of Polish heritage to connect with their history, raise Polish Community profile, contribute to Melbourne’s cultural diversity, and foster cultural understanding.
Poles have made a significant contribution to the Australian landscape since the first Polish migrant arrived on these shores some 200 years ago. Almost 200,000 Poles now call Australia home and have embraced the Australian way of life.
Activities include stalls of various Polish wares and culinary treats, performances by Polish Language Schools, folkloric and other entertainment groups, fun children activities, craft demonstrations, art exhibitions and much more.
Each year the festival continues to grow and build on its successes. Come along, join in the fun and see what the Polish Festival is all about.
