Since 1979, the Copernicus Foundation has sponsored the annual “TASTE OF POLONIA” outdoor festival – the largest Polish festival in the City. The “TASTE OF POLONIA” offers a wide variety of live entertainment on 5 stages, food vendors serving the best of Polish cuisine, games of skill and chance, performances by ethnic dancers and musical groups, original arts and crafts, handiwork, imported items, as well as exhibits familiarizing festival goers with many aspects of Polish customs, culture, traditions and language. Many languages are heard on the grounds because “Taste” has become one of the most popular ethnic fests in Chicago, drawing crowds well over 30,000 during its four day span.
