The oldest Polish Festival in the United States

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — The annual Polish Festival kicked off in Portland Saturday. This year marks the 24th year of the event, which also makes it the oldest Polish Festival in the United States.

The event recognizes Oregon’s historic Polish neighborhood.

“We have the kids corner for all of the families,” said Katarina Tiley at the festival. “We also have performances on the stage… food in the food court.”
