Our members will be working long hours preparing over 5,000 Golabki, over a ton of city chicken, 750 pounds of potato pancakes, and over 20,000 Pierogi for the Polish dinners,” says festival chairman, Walter Ziemniak. “People can’t wait to try one of our famous Polish dinners at the Polish Kitchen. For those that like American foods, we have an American Kitchen, as well. Our trademarked polish nacho and polish sliders are the best anywhere, and this year we will have new comfort food items on the menu at the Kielbasa Kafe.
There will be plenty of ice cold Polish and domestic beer, an extensive line of Polish and premium spirits at the Polish Pub, and the largest wooden dance floor in SE Michigan. Returning this year is our infamous “Pole Dancer” beer, which is only available at the American-Polish Festival. Many people come to the festival to shop at the crafter’s booth and then have a meal while the music plays.
