We hope you’re enjoying the hot summer days of August, wherever you are and staying safe! For the past 12 years we’ve been spending Augusts in Poland, with our guests, small-groups and private parties, traveling around, attending wonderful local festivals and enjoying regional fare, including the best Polish LODY – ice cream! But, in 2020, unfortunately, we’re not in Poland and not hosting any of our guests. Although the pandemic has not allowed our guests to enjoy travel to Poland this summer, most of the popular festivals, luckily, will go on however, in much scaled back formats.
One of our favorite August festivals in Poland is the annual PIEROGI Festival in Krakow! We’ve blogged about this “delicious” festival many times over the past 12 years on both Slow Travel Tours blog and Poland Culinary Vacations blog. This year’s PIEROGI FESTIVAL is scheduled for August 13 – 16, 2020. Here are links to previous write ups about this not to be missed food festival in Poland!
Another amazing festival we love and organize a tour around it, is the POLISH POTTERY Festival in Boleslawiec, Poland. The experience of attending this five days festival is unforgettable! This year’s festival is scheduled for August 19 – 23, 2020. Here’s our past blog about this spectacular Polish ceramics event.
At the end of August, wine festival also start happening in various regions of Poland and go on until end of September. One of our favorite is the International WINE DAYS Festival in Jaslo, in Subcarpathian region of Poland (south-east of Krakow). This year’s Wine Days Festival in Jaslo has been cancelled but here are previous blog posts about this unique attraction in south-eastern Poland and other interesting wine festivals in Poland.
We invite you to join us in Poland in August 2021 at any of the above described summer festivals and truly experience the best of Polish summer! All of our 2021 small-group tour dates have been posted on www.PolandCulinaryVacations.com website. The wine tour itineraries can be arranged for private parties, with customized itineraries, on your desired dates of travel, when arranged early.
