St. Stephen the King Annual Polish Festival Set August 9

OSWEGO – St. Stephen’s Church in Oswego will hold its annual Polish Festival August 9 on the church grounds at 140 Niagara St. from noon until 7 p.m.

Volunteers have been busy preparing the Polish foods.

Pierogis are being offered in 3 variety favorites – cheese, potato-cheese and cabbage.

The offerings also include golabki, kielbasa and kapusta.

On a recent trip to Poland some parishioners came back with a recipe for another Polish dish called bigos.

They will prepare and offer a limited number of samples of bigos for people to try.

Take-out orders will again be available but must be placed by Aug. 7.

Call the church office at 343-0350 or the church hall at 343-6378.

As much as festival-goers enjoy the Polish food, there are also the traditional picnic foods to enjoy as well as refreshments.

The church grounds are busy with a variety of games for young and old.

Children can enjoy the air-hops and games of skill just perfect for their levels.

The Little Critters game is a favorite for those who return each year.

Adults have the variety booth dice throw, grocery bag game, the famous baked goods booth and other games of chance.

The beautiful baskets raffle returns with a huge variety of themed baskets to win.

There are raffles and a beautiful quilt hand-made by ladies of the parish.

St. Stephen’s Bazaar wouldn’t be complete without that Polka music.

Live music will be played by the New Direction Band from Buffalo, from 2 to 6 p.m.

There’s plenty of room to get up and dance or just clap your hands under the shade of the nearby trees.

Before the live music begins, enjoy DJ tunes beginning at noon.

This is a rain or shine event.
