Twin Cities Polish Festival Minneapolis, MN

Welcome to the Twin Cities Polish Festival in Minneapolis, MN

Welcome to the Twin Cities Polish Festival!

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.

Village Visitor

Białowieża village in Poland.

The European bison (Bison bonasus), also known as wisent or the European wood bison. It is the heaviest wild animal in Europe. In the free-ranging population of the Białowieża Forest body masses among adults are 634 kg, but an occasional big bull European bison can weigh up to 1,000 kg.

In Poland live more than 1,400 bisons, out of which 1,200 are in free-range herds. You can come across them not only in Bialowieza, but also in the Knyszyn Forest and Bieszczady Mountains.

They sometimes visit the residents of Białowieża village

Snippet of history - Szlachta - Polish nobility

"Szlachta" is the proper term for Polish nobility beginning about the 15th century. Most powerful members of szlachta were known as magnates ("magnaci" or the "magnateria" class). A Polish nobleman who lived earlier is referred to as a "rycerz" ("knight"); the class of all such individuals is the "rycerstwo" (the "chivalry" class). Most powerful members of "rycerstwo" were known as "możnowładzcy" (the "moznowładztwo" class).
The nobility negotiated substantial and increasing political and legal privileges for itself throughout its entire history until the decline of the Polish Commonwealth in the late 18th century.

"A Cat in am Empty Apartment "( Kot w pustym mieszkaniu )
by Wisława Szymborska ( Polish poet, essayist, translator and recipient of the 1996 Nobel Prize in Literature )

Die? One does not do that to a cat.
Because what's a cat to do
in an empty apartment?
Climb the walls.
Caress against the furniture.
It seems that nothing has changed here,
but yet things are different.
Nothing appears to have been relocated,
yet everything has been shuffled about.
The lamp no longer burns in the evenings.
Footsteps can be heard on the stairway,
but they're not the ones.
The hand which puts the fish on the platter
is not the same one which used to do it.
Something here does not begin
at its usual time.
Something does not happen quite
as it should
Here someone was and was,
then suddenly disappeared
and now is stubbornly absent. All the closets were peered into.
The shelves were walked through.
The rug was lifted and examined.
Even the rule about not scattering
papers was violated.
What more is to be done?
Sleep and wait.
Let him return,
at least make a token appearance.
Then he'll learn
that one should not treat a cat like this.
He will be approached
as though unwillingly,
on very offended paws.
With no spontaneous leaps or squeals at first.
