Polish Fest – Milwaukee – 2016

I was lucky enough to make some Polish friends this year and they are like my second family. Of course, I had to check out PolishFest to have some sausage, sauerkraut, and some vodka!

Everything was white and red and there were Polish flags everywhere. I was greeted by a mini polka band and a lot of booths with information on Polish culture. There was even a stage featuring a Chopin piano competition.

It was a warm day and people cooled down on the benches and picnic tables, which is where I had my Polish sausage with sauerkraut on a bun served with chive fries. There was even a Pierogi Truck!

I checked out the kids stage where my friends had a daughter in the pageant. It was amazing seeing all the different colors on the dresses and asking what the colors meant. This was a special year as it was the 35th anniversary!

There was also an amazing non-stop polka stage, which requires no explanation! It was a great way to people watch and hear some great classic polkas…and see the effect of the vodka!

I couldn’t leave the land of red and white without sipping on some tasty Chopin Vodka. Let’s just say, it’s a good thing I used Uber to get to the festival!
