The Polish Festival @ Federation Square is a perfect opportunity to bring your business or organisation to the attention of the Melbourne community and increase your exposure.
In 2012 we are once again seeking to expand the Polish "taste" experience by increasing the diversity of Polish dishes and refreshments. When deciding on the nature of your stall we encourage you to consider including a variety of dishes not previously found at the festival, but ones that are common in Polish households, such as the delectable kopytka z sosem, gulasz z miesem, bigos z chlebem or even barszcz z uszkami. We are particularly interested in someone setting up a refreshment (non-alcohol) stall in the form of a kafejka (café) on the River Terrace with tables and chairs, and which might even also sell suntan lotion.
It's important to note that being Polish isn't a prerequisite for holding a stall at the festival - in fact, we encourage non-Poles to join us. You just need to be keen to present Melbourne with a taste of Poland through goods and services connected or associated with Poland.
