PolishFest 2020

Celebrate PolishFest with an Old-World Christmas on Sunday, November 8th, 2020! This is a family-oriented event with Pittsburgh's Polish, Lithuanians, and Carpatho-Rusyns. Welcome! - Witamy!

For the past 37 years the Polish-Americans have come together to celebrate their rich ethnic heritage in music, song, dance, folkarts and food.  Along our ethnic journey we have come to appreciate and include the Lithuanians and the Carpatho-Rusyns as our cultures share many of the same values, customs and traditions.  The POLISHFEST has become the showcase to celebrate, remember and share.

With the unexpected virus that has altered all of our lives, we continue remember and share these ethnic values, customs and traditions but in an exciting new way... the VIRTUAL POLISHFEST 2020.  To remember a phrase from the Polish National Anthem -  "Jeszcze Polska Nie Zginela"" --”Poland Is Not Yet Lost" - We as Americans of all nationalities will never be lost as long and we “Remember Our Past, Practice It In The Present, With Hope For Our Future.”

We dedicate this 37th Annual POLISHFEST to the faith, devotion and love that E .Maxine Bruhnes give the to cultivation of the Nationality Rooms Programs at the University of Pittsburgh.  We are here today because Maxine cared yesterday for tomorrow!

We Thank You The University Of Pittsburgh, Festival Participants, Festival Guests For Their Dedication, Their Love And Support For 37 Years Of Heritage And Culture Through Education.
