Federation Square will be busting out the pierogi at its annual Polish Festival, helping you to celebrate Polish culture and forget about all your mates and their mid-year jaunts through Europe — at least momentarily.

Expect hearty food like bigos (hunter's stew), and kielbasa (sausage), as well as heaps of traditional cakes and pastries. Once you've downed a couple of plates of pierogi, you can move into the beer garden where there'll be plenty of Polish vodka and beer, such as Zywiec and Tyskie.

Live music and dance will also feature, as will folk-inspired art and handcrafted ceramics, raking in the points for old-world charm. Kids and kidults will find face painting, wianki (wreath) making, as well as DIY crafting masks of Smok Wawelski (a famous dragon in Polish folklore). Come for the pierogi, stay for learning about the history and legends of Poland.

Polish Festival runs from 10am–5pm
