The Twin Cities Polish Festival is a non-profit organization created to bring a world-class celebration of Polish culture and heritage to the Twin Cities. It also helps promote various community-service and Polish-American organizations.
The Twin Cities Polish Festival will immerse Minnesotans and visitors in “all things Polish”, presenting a kaleidoscope of unique cultural and educational displays, food and top-notch entertainment.
Bring a blanket, take a seat on the lawn along the Old Main Street in Minneapolis, visit with friends, watch outstanding musical and dance entertainment, enjoy traditional foods and beverages, and just simply have fun!
You’ll see for yourself why Poland has earned itself the reputation as one of the World’s most hospitable cultures.
The intercultural sound of MEGITZA is deeply rooted in her Highlander-Roma heritage. Born in Zakopane (Poland), at the age of 16 Megitza emigrated to the US (Chicago) on her own where her dream of making music came true.
Critics describe her music as “music for the new millennium” seeking in it influences of the Balkan, Roma, Highlander, Latin, ethno – jazz, reggae, rock music – but it is not just the wide range of musical genres that sets Megitza apart from other entertainers but the energy and feeling her band puts into every performance that invariably remain as the compositional compass of Megitza.

Boogie Wonderland play all your classic disco dance floor favorites from those great days of the seventies and early eighties… back in the good old days when trousers were flared, collars were wide and Saturday Night Fever was huge!
The band is made up of seasoned music industry pros, all with one thing in common – they love the funk! They aren’t a stuffy “function band” playing the same old corporate standards. Only the best soul/funk and disco is allowed in their set.
