Events

 


The Polish Center of Wisconsin is home to countless cultural and community events throughout the year.

Have you ever wondered how to make pierogi or wanted to try the best vodka that Poland has to offer?  You can explore everything Polish from music, art, language, cooking and crafts to history and genealogy.   We have an annual golf outing plus Christmas, Easter, and Mother's Day brunches for the entire family.  Our Lenten Friday Fish Fries are sure to delight young and old alike

 

Every summer we also host America's largest Polish celebration -Polish Fest- at Milwaukee's lakefront  Maier Festival Park.  Whether you are deeply rooted in Polish culture or just in search of a welcoming atmosphere, everyone is invited to experience our Polish ambiance.  Visit us at the Polish Center and get a taste of Poland without crossing the Atlantic!
