Taste of Polonia
The Copernicus Center, situated in the heart of the Jefferson Park neighborhood and one block from CTA and Metra stops, shines as a beacon of Polish culture. Though it serves as a gathering place for nightly dances, ESL classes, and theatrical performances, its most anticipated event is the annual Taste of Polonia. The festival stretches over the Labor Day weekend, welcoming crowds to celebrate Polish culture with traditional eats and live music.
On four stages, 40 Bands such as Lounge Puppets, Libido Funk Circus, Cat Fight, Breakfast Club, and Gentlemen of Leisure entertain audiences. In addition to live performances, the festival also hosts kid-friendly events, such as clowns, face painting, contests, carnival games, and a bounce house village. Free parking is available at the Irish American Center, just a five minute walk from the Copernicus Center.
