The St. Mary's 37th Annual Polish Festival will be held throughout Memorial Day Weekend on the campus of the historical Orchard Lake St. Mary’s Preparatory in Orchard Lake, Michigan.

The St. Mary’s Polish Country Fair is the nation’s largest high school fair. Originated in 1972, this Memorial Day event is an annual tradition for hundreds of Detroit-area families and attracts upward of 110,000 people.

In conjunction with Mid-America Shows, the amusement ride partner of the Polish Country Fair, the event offers 50 carnival rides for all ages. The Carnival Midway is second in size only to the Michigan State Fair.

Due to its amazing success last year, The Polish Country Fair will feature again this year the Crazy Mouse Spinning Roller Coaster - an 80 ft.-high roller coaster!

Polish food is center stage at the St. Mary’s Polish Country Fair. The Polish Combo Meal is a great selection of Polish favorites including a variety of pierogi, stuffed cabbage, kielbasa and sour kraut.

Fair patrons consumed over 20,000 pierogi (cheese, potato, mushroom or sauerkraut filled dumplings) at last year’s festival!

Bozek Market is the official pierogi sponsor and will supply an estimated 25,000 Polish Harvest brand pierogi for this year’s Fair.
