_MG_5743The 61st Syracuse Polish Festival was a great success.  Wonderful ambiance, great music, and delicious Polish food among a few attractions have resulted in many people visiting the festival and spent a wonderful time while doing so.  Our organization thanks Consul General from NY, Urszula Gacek, Congressman John M.Katko with his wife, as well as the Mayor of Syracuse  Stephanie Miner for their support for the festival and our mission, which is to help support young talented students in their college career aspirations.

Thanks also go out to the wonderful Polish-American volunteers, which have conquered an incredible amount of work and have created a wonderful ambiance by helping at the festival.  We would also like to thank the residents of Central New York that have visited our festival and that had a good time along with us.

Our festival has been created to continue cultivating Polish culture and supported talented young minds, who we wish all the best in their journey to fulfilling their career aspirations.

And the Polish Festival will soon again take over Clinton Square and we hope to once again provide a magical ambiance for the residents of Central New York.

See you next time!
