Bay Area's Largest Polish Festival 2016

The Best Polish Festival in The Bay Area!

Bay Area’s largest Polish Festival, PolCa, held in Belmont last year was such a success that the Polish–American Community has come together once more to announce its second annual Polish Heritage Festival. The festival will be held on June 4th from 11:00 AM to 6 PM at Twin Pines Park in Belmont, CA. The PolCa Polish Festival welcomes all ages to come and celebrate Polish-American heritage with Polish food and drink specialties, a Polish Jazz band, live music performances, dance recitals, and exhibits.

The Polish Heritage Festival selected Twin Pines Park as its designated location because of its central Bay Area location and available public parking around the entire park. It is located just a few blocks from the Belmont Caltrain Station and several SamTrans bus lines. The park has lush shade trees and beautiful trails to enjoy as attendees walk through the festival enjoying all the entertainment, food booths, arts, and crafts.

PolCA is also proud to present two stages of non-stop entertainment. “We are excited to feature The Dixie Company Polish Jazz band that is coming all the way from Poznan, Poland,” said Andrzej Prokopczuk, the main organizer of PolCA. Delivering lively New-Orleans-style jazz that bridges two cultures, The Dixie Company will be playing throughout the day, leaving audiences totally exhilarated. Other leading entertainment includes local Polish band Kuzyni, San Francisco’s Łowiczanie Polish Folk Ensemble, Polonez Dance Company from San Diego, “Sokoly” Children’s Dance Ensemble, and children of the John Paul II Polish Language School.

The Polish Heritage Festival will be offering some of Poland’s top beers and California wines. If attendees have not had a chance to savor the old-world recipes of Poland, now they can take a bite of Poland’s culinary favorites. Polish delicacies offered will be authentic Polish kielbasa,Polska Foods’ local pierogi, homemade stuffed cabbage rolls (Golabki), traditional hunter’s stew (bigos), pork cutlets, potato pancakes and lots of delicate Polish desserts. Attendees can also quench their thirst with smoothies, iced coffee, wine, tea, and sodas.

PolCa Festival is currently sponsored by the Polish American Congress, Northern California Division, The Polish Club of San Francisco, The Polish National Alliance, Lodge 7, and Polonian Cultural and Pastoral Center of Sacramento.

Adult admission is $5, and children up to 12 are free. The festival welcomes additional vendors and volunteers! For more information, visit http://www.polcafestival.com
