The 2024 festival will be on 10 November!!!


Bringing a taste of Poland to the heart of Melbourne

The Polish Festival @ Fed Square is a celebration of Polish culture in Melbourne. It is Australia’s largest annual Polish not-for-profit community event. All the Polish entertainment, hospitality, and cuisine in one place on the one day.

From its inception, the Festival’s aim has been to bring a taste of Poland to Melbourne. We want to showcase Polish culture to the greater Victorian population via one event on the Polish community calendar that caters to all demographics whilst brings all Polish community groups together.

Our aim is to ignite a little bit of the Polish in everyone who visits our festival.
