Polish Hill Arts Festival2017
The Polish Hill Arts Festival is a quirky, friendly, relaxed event. The festival features more than 30 local artists and contemporary craftspeople displaying and selling their artwork in a range of media, sizes and prices. Our vendors, performers and other participants tell us it’s their favorite.
There’s live music, tasty food and hands-on art-making activities for all ages from all walks of life. Admission to the festival is free, including musical performances. Many of the artists, craftspeople and musicians are from Polish Hill or neighborhoods nearby.
The Polish Hill Civic Association produced its first arts festival in 2008, then called Art What You Got. Each year since, the event takes place the day after the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church festival — creating a festival weekend of old and new.
In 2010, the event was renamed to honor and promote the neighborhood. The Polish Hill Arts Festival is the biggest civic event of the year, drawing hundreds of residents and visitors to the intersection of Brereton and Dobson streets in the heart of Polish Hill.
