The Polish Community Association of Maryland (PCAM) welcomes you!
Maryland's Polish Festival
Maryland State Fairgrounds
2200 York Road
Timonium, MD 21093
We regret to inform
you, that as a result of the continued lack of attendance at the
Polish Festival at Timonium State Fairgrounds over the past six
years, the Polish Community Association of Maryland, Inc. has
suffered a detrimental financial loss resulting in having to
cancel the 2017 Polish Festival and all future Polish Festivals at
The PCAM will continue to sponsor the annual East Baltimore Traditional Christmas Caroling event on December 23 at 7:00 PM at Polish Home Club in Fells Point.
We wish to thank the many volunteers, past and present, who have dedicated their time and efforts at each festival since 1973. There were many good times had, friendships forged and memories made.
So for now – Thanks for those memories and Bardzo dziekuje.
Steve Lesniewski Jr.

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.
Besides, Maryland has had sports enthusiasts throughout its history because sports play a huge role in this state. No surprises then why you may be overwhelmed with options when looking for the best sports betting Maryland bookies. You can choose from a wide range of options to place wagers on your favorite teams here.
Sports betting activities have become legalized in Maryland and are expected to launch with the upcoming NFL season. The state lawmakers had passed laws to this effect in 2021. In May 2021, their Governor Larry Hogan signed to make sports betting in the state completely legal. The Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission opened license applications to 17 establishments this month. After this approval comes through, the licensees are free to start retail sportsbooks.
The NF betting is the most popular event with the Baltimore Ravens commanding a huge fan following. Side by side, there are also betting markets for other sports like tennis, boxing, basketball, soccer etc. Bettors will soon be able to access multiple sportsbooks and with 60 potential licenses to be obtained, there will be an entry of many sports brands. So, as a Maryland bettor, you can bet on all major league events like NBA, NFL, and NHL, and even college basketball and football.

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.
