The Taste of Polonia Festival, as always, will offer four stages filled with the best entertainment, live music, dance and cultural performances; there is a kids stage specifically for kid-friendly activities. There is always a wide variety of live music including world music, pop, rock, and much more! Over 60 performers will showcase their one of a kind music, dances, and talent. Polka bands, folk dancing, international music, movie screenings, and other enjoyable activities will be available on the other stages throughout the day.
The LOT Polish Airlines Tribute Stage will feature local bands like Tributosaurus become R.E.M, Hairbangers Ball, Led Zeppelin 2, Think Floyd USA, and Gentleman of Leisure (That’s just naming a few). During the day make sure you don’t miss the Polka bands and local bands —–
Fortunately, parents won’t need to be concerned about their children becoming bored. To keep the kids entertained, the kids area will have everything from face painting, a bounce house area, karate, a Judo Club, a police academy, a dance academy performance, a kids’ disco, Mary Macaroni and the Impastas, and many other kid-friendly activities.
The festival will be filled with merchants and food vendors who never fail to sell the most delicious or desirable Polish and English products. Take a stroll down our long merchant row which offers shopping treasures from many excited vendors like Midwest Amber, Green Mountain Energy, Amber Treasures, Sigma Solutions, Goskand Sports, and many others. Grab a bite to eat at our newest food vendor Polombia, a Polish Colombian fusion restaurant, or at festival classics like Dumpling House and I Love Grill and Lemonade.
There will be even more activities and events inside the Copernicus Center. The historic theater will feature films, performances, and orchestra performances. Featuring not only local Polish folk groups but ones from Canada, Minnesota, and Wisconsin as well. For the more artsy individuals we have a beautiful art exhibit and a classical music performance. There will also be a Polish film festival for those who just want to enjoy a movie. For those who love to gamble, the Copernicus Center also has its very own Casino which includes Blackjack, Texas Hold Em, and two money wheels. (Good Luck!)
