(Cleveland) - Once again on the day after Easter, Cleveland's Gordon Square will be the spot for Cleveland Dyngus Day, a celebration of all things Polish.
This year’s festivities are expanding from last year: in addition to the celebration taking place at Gordon Green, people can also polka their way through W. 58th Street, which will be closed off for vendor sales, and another large parking lot between Happy Dog and Angel Printing. For those who can’t attend the in-person events, festivities will be live-streamed on Facebook.
Dyngus Day is the Polish holiday that falls on the Monday immediately after Easter. It is a day that not only celebrates Polish culture, but also a day to “blow off a little bit of steam” after observing Lent.
Meeting the demands of polka-party-craving-Clevelanders, the daylong celebration will feature a lineup of entertainment including polka dancing, the annual pierogi eating contest, the crowning of Ms. Dyngus Day, the first-ever amateur accordion contest and live entertainment. DJ Kishka – renowned Polka personality – will return as the host.
This year, $16 tickets are required to get in. You can buy the tickets and learn more about Dyngus Day at this link.
