Welcome to the official website of the P.C.A.M. Polish Festival.
Serving Baltimore and the greater Baltimore, Maryland area.
The Polish Festival is sponsored and presented by the Polish Community Association of Maryland, a non-profit organization. The Association was founded to preserve Polish customs and history by presenting the Polish Festival and the opportunity to interact with the pageantry, folklore, and of course, the food and drink.
The Association also donates a Christmas Tree, decorated with authentic Polish crystal ornaments, to the Kennedy Kreiger Institute's Festival of Trees held during the Thanksgiving weekend and sponsors the traditional Polish Christmas Caroling through the streets of Fells Point, Maryland on December 23 each year.

Past Festivals at Patterson Park
What happened to the Polish Festival for 2011 ?
With great reluctance, the board of the P.C.A.M. cancelled the Festival for 2011 due to rising costs with the City of Baltimore. The Polish Festival kicked off the city's ethnic festival season each summer. This would have been its 38th year in Baltimore; after a long run at Rash Field, the celebration moved to Patterson Park in 1990. This was an ideal location as the corner of Linwood Street and Eastern Avenue is the home of the General Casimir Pulaski monument, and it was close to the Polish community.
Everything was proceeding, as in past years, to host the Festival at Patterson Park; but the City literally doubled the cost for services and permits. There was no time to find another location for 2011, so the Festival was cancelled. After checking into several locations, it was decided to go to the Maryland State Fairgounds for 2012.
