Pierogi Fest Whiting Indiana
The 17th Annual Pierogi Fest will make it’s return to Historic Downtown Whiting this Friday, July 29th and will make it’s run through the 31st. The
Fest brings in thousands of visitors from all over the country. This unique fest is Whiting’s biggest event of the year, so mark your calenders and don’t miss out on the fun!
It isn’t really clear how the Pierogi Fest originated, but one thing for sure is that it has become a major hit! One of the most popular events is the delightfully tacky, International Polka Parade, which will march straight down 119th Street on Friday night at 7:00. Don’t miss this hilarious parody-type parade featuring the Special Precision Lawnmower Drill team, the one and only Twirling Babushka Brigade! This parade will have you laughing the whole way through!
Before or after the parade, dig into some of the best, mouthwatering pierogies you will ever have, and if pierogies aren’t your thing, don’t worry, there are plenty of other vendors selling all types of delicious cuisine. Don’t forget to grab yourself an ice cold beer from the beer garden to wash down all that scrumptious food.
Not only is there an abundance of food at the Pierogi Fest, there are loads of other things to keep you entertained as well, such as, an arts and crafts area, Pierogi Toss competition, Pierogi Eating contest, and live music and dancing. The ever-popular Pierogi Songfest will be held on Saturday afternoon at 1:00. Come sing the Pierogi Fest anthem, to the tune of “Matilda” and the “Whiting, Indiana” song. Feel free to stay for a slew of other hilarious songs that all revolve around Whiting’s favorite food-the pierogi. Songs such as, “Anything You Can Eat, I Can Eat More Of” and “I Will Deep Fry,” will have you ROFL!
Stop by Whiting’s Pierogi Fest for a guaranteed fun-filled weekend of laughs and entertainment. Only at The Pierogi Fest will you see grown women dressed like bushas in housecoats and babushkas. While you’re there don’t forget to stop and say hello to Mr. Pierogi and his Pieroguettes; Miss Cheese, Miss Potato, Miss Sauerkraut, Miss Mushroom, Miss Beef, Miss Apricot, and Miss Berry.
