Time to show your Polish pride this weekend and head out to Montreal's Polish Festival, happening this Saturday and Sunday at Faubourg Park. A cultural tour de force featuring the many aspects of Polish culture, the 4th edition of the Montreal Polish festival will be two days of food, music, and fun.
Entirely free to attend, the Montreal Polish Festival will include 15 different shows and musical performances, close to a hundred artists showcasing their works, music and painting workshops, and tons of games like giant-chess. Food and beer will be a strong presence at the festival as well, with an extensive polish menu to be served and Zywiec Polish beer to wash it all down with.
A couple pro-tip to those heading to the festival: Zywiec is offering free beer to anyone going to the Polish party, as long as you fill out this form beforehand. Free polish donuts will also be served to the first 250 festival attendees, so arrive early and get your sweet-tooth fix.
Montreal's Polish Festival is this Saturday and Sunday (August 9th & 10th) at Faubourg Park (map) by Papineau metro, with performances starting at noon. For more info, head over to the official website and FB event page.
