American Polish Festival

The American-Polish Century Club is pleased to announce the American Polish Festival & Craft Show, July 11-13, 2014, on the grounds of The American Polish Century Club, 33204 Maple Lane, Sterling Heights, Mi 48312.

The festival is located in Sterling Heights, MI. This is just a few miles from Hamtramck, Mi. Poles are the second largest ethnic group in Michigan and are a significant part of the history of Detroit. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, Michigan is home to the third largest Polish population after New York and Illinois. The current population of Michigan’s Polish Americans is concentrated in Macomb County. Sterling Heights has become one of the centers of Polonia in Michigan, since thier migration from Hamtramck.

Our Festival draws thousands of friends and families from all around Michigan, Ohio, and Illinois. Our spirited festival features live music and dancing. Highlighting our Festival are the biggest names in Polka Music, along with finest Polish Dance Ensembles in Michigan. This is our second year for the Srodek’s Pierogi Eating Challenge. This competition is consuming the most Srodek’s Potato & Cheese Pierogi you can eat in ten minutes. Last years record of 49 pierogi in ten minutes comes close to setting the record. Try our delicious Polish Kitchen, the Polish Pub-n-Grub, and Beer Tent or visit anyone of the many vendors that take part in this event. There will be a Traditional Polish Mass on Sunday at 12:00 Noon. Stroll our Outdoor Craft Show featuring over 50 different crafters displaying their fine works. Admission to the festival is free to the public, although a $5.00 daily parking fee is required.
