The Polish Arts Festival 2019 Opens This September  

The Polish Arts Festival has been celebrating 12 years in Limerick. We are very proud to have been selected as one of the Made in Limerick Projects by the Limerick City of Culture 2014. The Polish Arts Festival aims to promote the different facets of the Pole abroad as a worker, an artist, a member of the local community and a contributor to European cultural heritage. Although we’re far from home, we reach to our roots so we can teach our children what it means to be Polish.
