The South Side Polish Festival – Family fun recommended by our Chicago Hotel

This three day festival takes place from August 10-12 and is a stunning celebration of Polish culture. Live entertainment such as Polka bands, cover bands and Polish dancing will return along with traditional Polish delicacies and craft beer. Last year’s South Side Polish Festival drew over 37,000 people and this year promises to be even larger. There are also exhilarating carnival rides such as the giant Ferris wheel and the crowd favorite Pierogi Eating Contest to check out. Last year’s champion John Pawinski ate 30 pierogis in five minutes, can you beat his record? Make sure you come down to this event for an unforgettable festival experience, there’s even free parking for extra convenience and free admission for military personnel or children under 12.
