This Labour Day weekend, September 1-3, and the following weekend, September 8-9, The National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa will be hosting the 47th Annual Polish-American Family Festival and Country Fair. Come out and celebrate traditional Polish culture with live entertainment, arts and crafts, re-enactments, ethnic foods, midway rides and more.

Starting with a small, informal event in 1966, the Festival has grown from humble beginnings into one of the oldest and most popular festivals of its kind in the U.S. Each year the Festival attracts a diverse crowd of local, regional and international visitors, with over 25,000 festival attendees in 2009 alone. 

Along with the Belmont Magic Show and Styka Art Exhibit, entertainment includes musical acts and dance groups (see below), along with various reenactment groups:

  • Polish Warriors From Across the Centuries (16th-20th Century Historical Re-enactors)
  • Banner of Jasna Gora
  • Husaria
  • Polish WWII Re-enactors

Admission is $10 at the door and includes unlimited entrance to midway rides all day long (extreme rides at additional cost), stage shows and special events.
