PolishFest is an annual three day event and the largest in Capital District celebrating Polish and Polish-American arts, literature, music, culture,
history, and, of course Polish food.
We are also proud to host Polish vendors of high quality Polish crafts not easily found in the Capital District.
We’ve planned this event so that there will be plenty of fun activities for kids, adults, and seniors. With our wide variety of musical, artistic, educational The Capital District’s PolishFest is a celebration of Polish heritage – the food, music, art, language, customs and the culture of the Polish people. The annual Festival is held on the grounds of Blessed Virgin Mary of Czestochowa Church conveniently located at 250 Old Maxwell Rd., Latham, NY just off I-87.
The Festival features a vast array of favorite traditional Polish foods, including pierogi (stuffed dumplings), golabki (cabbage rolls), kielbasa (sausage), Bigos (hunter stew), Borscht (beet soup) and a huge assortment of gourmet Polish desserts lovingly prepared by our parishioners. Music and traditional Polish dances entertain festival-goers throughout the day.
