Muskegon holds inaugural Polish Festival

Muskegon Polish Fest kicks off

MUSKEGON, MICH. - For the first time ever, people in Muskegon are celebrating polish heritage with a festival!

The inaugural Muskegon Polish Festival kicked off Friday in Hackley Park downtown and continues Saturday from noon to 9 pm.

It features cultural activities for both children and adults, and plenty of Polish food.

Live polka bands provide the background music for what festival Vice President Len Piasecki says is his favorite part of the event. 

"We have a large wooden dance floor and people of all ages are out there, not only polka-ing, but just twirling and having a great time," he says. "It's great to see such energy in the community."

The event will wrap up on Sunday with a Polish Mass at St. Michaels church, followed by an authentic polish dinner. You can buy tickets for the dinner for $10 either at the festival Sunday at the door.
