Polish Midsummer Festival – Sat 22nd June 3013

Liverpool One will host a fantastic Polish Midsummer Festival this weekend, with live Polish folklore music.

On Saturday 22nd of June 2013, Merseyside Polonia will be celebrating The Polish Midsummer Festival in Chavasse Park, Liverpool One.  Read all about the photo opportunities here!

The festival traces its roots to a peaceful pagan ritual where maidens would float wreaths of herbs on the water to predict when they would be married, and to whom. The day of marry making had become a festive event and it still continues until today. It is also a feast celebrating the unity of fire and water, Sun and Moon, man and woman, joy and love, on the shortest night of the year.

The day long festival will be filled with performances of live Polish folk bands, dance, singing and workshops on arts and crafts. There will be an opportunity to create a flower headdress, learn some Polish Language and traditional dance and find out more about Poland and its treasures.
