Melbourne’s 2012 Polish Festival

Friday Nov 18, 2011

Poland comes to Australia this weekend, when the Polish Festival takes over Melbourne’s Federation Square. This lively celebration kicks off at 10:00am on Sunday, the 20th of November and has something to offer everyone.

Poland is known for its beautiful amber, and you will find no shortage of silversmiths working with this unique resin at the festival. You’ll have your pick of ornate rings, elegant necklaces, delicate earrings, and handcrafted cuffs and bracelets. Amber isn’t the only Polish import you will find; shop for books, movies, music, holiday ornaments, and handcrafted wares from the home land.

Vendors will be serving up a whole variety of traditional cuisine, and foodies will be in absolute heaven. Before you even arrive at Federation Square you will pick up the scent of sizzling Polish sausages and the warm aroma of fresh baked bread. Throw in a little sauerkraut, and you’ve got yourself quite the meal! If you’re not feeling the kielbasa, try some delectable pierogis or some homemade pickles instead. There is something to please every palate.

When your belly is full, you will find a plethora of events for the whole family, like traditional Polish folk dance and song, a fashion show featuring some of today’s hottest Polish designers, and an art exhibit presented by the Polish Art Foundation. You can get hands on at demonstrations of Polish paper cutting, wood carving, and embroidery. Not only will you learn a useful skill, you will take home a souvenir that you can feel proud of.

Kids can make their own souvenirs over at the Kidstop. There is a whole day’s worth of activities planned especially for the little ones. After they get their faces painted they can create their own Polish flags, decorate masks, and weave colorful garlands of flowers. Children will also be delighted and wide eyed when they see all of the sweets floating around. Paczek are similar to jelly donuts, sernik is a rich cheese cake topped with all sorts of fruits and flavored gelatins, and nobody can say no to chocolate and cherry budyn, a delicious and creamy pudding.

So load up the family in your cheap car rental in Australia from Kemwel and enjoy Poland for a day!
