The Roncesvalles Polish Festival is now the world's largest celebration of Polish culture in the world. Over two days, visitors see some of the best Polish bands and dance groups from across Canada and the United States, as well as some of the best musical talent that Roncesvalles Village has to offer. Activities along Roncesvalles Avenue include four stages of live music and dance, cultural displays, Polish food and international foods, crafts vendors, extended restaurant patios, beverage gardens, buskers, kids rides. An outdoor Polka dance is held Saturday night under the stars. Folklore dancers stroll the street and our symbolic festival ambassadors -- the Starosta and Starościna attired in traditional dress -- greet visitors.
