Dyngus Day Cleveland: Portion of proceeds to benefit Polish, Ukrainian relief efforts
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Organizers on Friday announced that the 12th Annual Dyngus Day kicks off April 18 with “Polish dancing, paczki and piwo!”
The festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Gordon Green in the city’s Detroit - Shoreway neighborhood.
Tickets are $30 a piece and include two vouchers for Polish beer, organizers said, and a portion of proceeds will benefit Polish and Ukrainian relief efforts.
The hybrid event is holding in-person events with limited attendance, according to organizers.
“Knowing that Dyngus Day is a true community celebration, we wanted to do everything we could to deliver the traditions, even if it looks a bit different this year,” Adam Roggenburk, president of USA Expo, said in a news release.
“We are giving people and businesses a way to come together – even virtually – with the full intent to bring back Dyngus Days to the streets in 2023,” he continued.
