Representations by Polish organizations

There are so many beautiful gardens to explore of different ethnic groups at the International Friendship Gardens. One of the goals of this festival is to raise money to restore the bust of Paderewski, which was destroyed and was located in the Polish Garden.
This is the first Polish Festival to be held in Northwest Indiana. We would like to make this an annual festival to bring and unite the Polish people together. This is a great event to unite Polonia
