Polish Festival Seattle Overview
Polish Festival Seattle is a joyful celebration of Polish culture, traditions and contemporary achievements. It is produced by the Seattle Polish Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, in partnership with the Seattle Center and support and collaboration from the Polish Home Association and Polish-American community, who contribute their time, leadership and energy to the event. The 6th Annual Polish Festival Seattle will be held on July 8, 2017 at the Seattle Center Armory and Mural Amphitheater, as part of the year-round Seattle Center Festál cultural festivals. Polish Festival Seattle programming will feature authentic Polish food, live music and dance performances, exhibits, demos and workshops, local merchants, beer garden, and children’s activities. This year’s festival will showcase the diverse region of Upper Silesia (Śląsk) with its long history of coal mining, unique medieval castles, and vibrant capital city of Katowice, historically important as Poland’s main industrial center, now expanded to become a vibrant cultural and business center.
