Southside Polish Fest 2012

August 11, 2012 @ 12:00 pm - 12:00 am


Come join Southside Polish Fest for a weekend of Music, Food and Fun as we celebrate Polish heritage! The three-day festival will feature live music (Polka, Polish dance music, and your favorite local cover bands), traditional Polish dancers, carnival rides for all ages, and of course Polish food and beer!

The 2nd Annual Southside Polish Fest is taking place at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL., on August 10-11-12,
2012. Last year’s inaugural festival drew over 37,000 people and this year is going to be even larger! A highlight
of the 2011 Southside Polish Fest was Chicago’s Original Pierogi Eating Contest. John Pawinski beat out a field
of nine eager and motivated contestants to become the contest’s very first champion. He achieved this milestone
by besting his opponents by eating 30 pierogis in five minutes. This year’s Fest will once again feather this test of intestinal fortitude!

The Southside Polish Fest has quickly established itself as one of the largest Polish Festivals in the United States and we are truly proud of this accomplishment and aim to make each year’s festival a must-see attraction to
people of all ethnicities.

Friday: 5pm to 11pm
Saturday: 12pm to 11pm
