Polish Day in LA

Celebrating Polish American Heritage

This is going to be the fourth installation of a Polish theme during the monthly Art Walks in Downtown Long Beach. Event is aiming to attract all spectrums of audiences to enjoy Polish music, delicious treats, good beer, and fun for the whole evening. There will be not only entertainment, but also craft booths with something for everybody to make. There will be a quick class to learn basic Polish phrases, and much more.

The featured element of the event is 17th Century Polish Winged Hussars’ traditional armor exhibit by Polish-American Rock Star and historical researcher–re-enactor Rik (Suligowski) Fox. Famous for their fearsome bravery and skillful excellence in battle, the Hussars’ tradition left behind them a great legacy for us to admire, thru General Casimir Pulaski who is known as ‘The Father of American Cavalry’. Replica examples of that armor will be at this event to impress with its unique and awe-inspiring craftsmanship. You will definitely, want to take a photo here.

There will be an exhibition of Polish contemporary and traditional works of art. Also, there will be an exhibit of Polish-American heroes, who took meaningful part in the history of creating the United States and Poland.

Polish food is not going to be omitted. Local Polish restaurant Polka will be serving traditional Polish dishes and snacks. Here is an example of one menu item: Polish Dumplings filled with: potatoes & cheese or sauerkraut & stewed mushrooms + white or red cabbage salad. Polish dishes will be served till supplies last – so do not wait, hurry and enjoy!

That’s not all! All evening long the Polka, Oberek and Polonez dance classes will be offered. Yes, the friendly instructors will be waiting for new students all evening. The names of local Polish folk ensembles are: Krakusy, Laykonik and Vistula Dancers.

Fun, entertainment and a professional atmosphere is the goal here. Over 15 Polish-California institutions and Organizations, including The Polish Consulate in Los Angeles will be working hard to make sure everyone has a great time!
