Showcasing Polish culture in the center of Melbourne

  • Are you a Polish Organisation?
  • Do you have a business selling Polish products and/or services?
  • Would you like to be part of the Polish Festival?

The Polish Festival @ Fed Square is a fantastic opportunity to bring your business or organization to the attention of the Melbourne community and increase your exposure.

Each year we seek to expand the Polish “taste” experience by maintaining a 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 showcased at the festival, but ones that are common in Polish kitchens, 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-alcoholic) stall in the form of a kafejka (café) on the River Terrace with tables and chairs.

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 associated with Poland.
