2017 - Polish Festival in North Vancouver  

Polish food, music and culture was celebrated at the 5th Polish Festival Vancouver 2017.

 

Annually held at Lynn Valley Village in North Vancouver this year’s Festival once again brought a taste of Poland to many visitors from the North Shore and beyond.

 

It combined a variety of attractions for children and adults including theatrical performances, Polish folk dances, live music, cultural exhibition, crafts and souvenirs.

 

It was a super great family-friendly day for everyone with tasty food, beer, entertainment, and market vendors.

 

To all sponsors and volunteers, heartfelt thank you - for all you do, for who you are.
