Houston’s 5th Annual Polish Festival,
Saturday April 30th and Sunday May 1st, 2011
Houston’s Polish Festival is a celebration of all things Polish – the food, the music, the language, the customs and the culture of the Polish people. The Festival is held on the grounds of Our Lady of Czestochowa Church conveniently located at 1731 Blalock Drive, about 1.5 miles north of the Katy Freeway. Featured at the Festival is a large sampling of traditional Polish foods such as pierogi (stuffed dumplings), golabki (cabbage rolls) and kielbasa (sausage) and a huge assortment of traditional cakes, rolls and desserts lovingly prepared by our parishioners. Music for this year’s festival will be provided by Brian Marshall and the Texas Slavic Playboys and Chris Rybak noted Texas accordionist; and traditional Polish songs and dances will be performed by our children’s choir throughout the day.
As part of the festival, visitors will be able to tour our beautiful church constructed in the traditional Polish style and will be able to see our Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, the Polish Black Madonna, and learn of Our Lady’s 600 year old history as protector and defender of the Polish nation. In addition, our festival provides a supervised, safe and fun children’s area complete with games, face painting, kids’ snacks and other fun activities to keep the kids entertained. Inside our beautifully decorated parish hall, visitors will find a silent auction full of unique items on which to bid while being entertained by a fine classical pianist. Our entire parish community extends an invitation for everyone to come and celebrate all things Polish with us – Zapraszamy! (We welcome you!)
