What Milwaukee native doesn’t remember going to Holiday Folk Fair as a child? We all experienced the thrill of watching the dancers, the fun of trying new foods, the excitement of shopping for holiday gifts from the many booths and, of course, the wonder of going through the different “living” cultural exhibits.
Holiday Folk Fair is still a holiday staple in Milwaukee, as much a part of this festive season as the Nutcracker ballet and the Christmas Parade. So, Polanki is delighted to be one of the key organizations involved in Folk Fair. In fact, Polanki was originally incorporated as a non-profit organization specifically to participate in this Milwaukee holiday institution!
We participate in two key areas of the fair:
- Cultural area, with a display focusing on some aspect of Polish village life.
- Marketplace, with a sales booth filled to the brim with affordable holiday gift items
The 2017 Folk Fair is being held on November 17-18 at State Fair Park; check the Folk Fair website for hours and more information.
Be sure to stop by both Polanki areas when you visit Folk Fair this year!
