New Britain, Connecticut has one of the largest and most vibrant Polish communities on the East Coast. The Little Poland Festival was first held in 2012 to celebrate Polish culture and heritage and to highlight the city’s Polish neighborhood known as Little Poland.

Over the years, the festival grew from 600 participants to over 35,000 who attended last year, many traveling to New Britain for our event from across New England and beyond.

Today, the Little Poland Festival is the highlight of the local Polish calendar and attracts a diverse crowd looking to experience great food, fantastic entertainment and have an overall good time at the first local outdoor festival of the season.
