2021 PCW Picnic and Fair

PAC Wisconsin Division at the
2021 PCW Picnic and Fair
in Polish Center of Wisconsin

What a delightful weekend it was! After Polish Fest on the SuperFest grounds was canceled in June of 2020 and 2021, the Polish Center of Wisconsin (PCW) in Franklin decided to host a similar in spirit event on its grounds. Thanks to this splendid idea, several thousands of Polish Americans and their friends could entertain many of the attractions offered at the Polish Fest.

2021 PCW Fair & Picnic

Polish food was served in the picnic area located in front of the building, but it could be enjoyed on the beatiful patio overseeing the Koepmier Lake. Vendors and folk artists displayed their wares in the main hall and the Veterans Room. There was also a chance to shake a leg in the Grand Ballroom (music by Larry Lynne Band, Noyz Boyz & Gyrlz and Polka Fusion) and relish performances of Syrena Dancers. To the enjoyment of many, Syrena shows ended with group members graciously inviting the audience members to dance with them kujawiak and polonez.

Our organization joined the festivities by hosting a booth in the Veterans Room, right across from the fellow organization Polanki offering as usual a fantastic choice of Polish jewelry and Boleslawiec pottery. The main attraction on our table was the DO YOU KNOW POLAND? booklet* and some took on the challenge on identifying all images on its cover – which was the target of recent recent DYKP competition.

For the successful presence of our organization at this event, hearfelt thanks go to the public-spirited volunteers working at our booth: Angela Pienkos, Anne Gournack, Clare Anne Gaouette, Derek Zarzeczny, Donald Pienkos, Hank Kulesza, Judith Free and Krystyna Zuzanski.

*Thanks to the funds obtained from the Polish Consulate in Chicago,
our copies of the booklet were printed in Magenta Priniting owned by a member of PAC-Wisconsin)
