PLUS Polish Festival Draws Thousands for Food, Music and Fun to Tappan, N.Y.

This Polish festival is billed “as the largest festival of its kind in the Tri-States region.”  It is May 25-26, 2013 at the German Masonic Park in Tappan (Rockland County).

Over 6000 New York, New Jersey and Connecticut residents gathered at the 4th Annual PLUS’ Polish Festival on May 27th 2012. This great event, hosted by PLUS Weekly, emphasizes the role of the publication in the lives of Polish-Americans on the East Coast. It is also a token of appreciation and gratitude for all the sympathy that our paper continuously receives from our readers.

Each past PLUS hosted event was a blast and featured among others: tons of fun, Polish traditional food and music, live entertainment and performances of folk dancers, games and attractions for children and youth, artisan exhibitions and sporting competitions.

I personally want to go to this festival.  If you don’t think this is a traditional Polish festival, think again.  Even their television ads are done in the Polish language!  Take a look at last years ad.


Where: Tappan, NY (Rockland County, 12 miles north of New York City)

When: May 25-26, 2013

Hi folks, this is "Big Chuck" here. I love Upstate New York!
