Dancing, food, and fun at the Polish festival this weekend

It’s back again in Sterling Heights

Nobody is going to leave hungry after this cultural festival because the American-Polish Festival is back!

The American-Polish Century Club will be hosting its 40th annual Festival & Craft Show in Sterling Heights. The event will feature live music, traditional dances, and their 9th annual pierogi eating challenge.

Today on “Live In The D”, host Jason Carr was joined by Ken Reszczyk, treasurer of the American Polish Century Club, and Arnie Beller, president of the Century Club. The festival offers free parking and a shuttle service. Along with the craft show, there will be vendors and of course, food.

Ken and Arnie brought traditional polish dishes such as, kielbasa, Gołąbki (stuffed cabbage), pierogis and a fan favorite, City Chicken. Some of the out-of-the-box dishes were polish nachos, with a white cheese sauce, sauerkraut and green onion. And we can’t forget the polish sushi! Instead of a sushi roll, it is a dill pickle wrapped in cream cheese and salami.
