A PARTY LIKE NO OTHER

Dyngus Day Cleveland happens once a year and is a Polka blast that rocks the streets of Cleveland with Polka jams from morning until night!

WHAT IS DYNGUS DAY?

Dyngus Day, or Wet Monday (Polish Śmigus-Dingus or lany poniedziałek) is the name for Easter Monday. Historically a Polish tradition, Dyngus Day celebrates the end of the observance of Lent and the joy of Easter. Over the decades, Dyngus Day has become a wonderful holiday to celebrate Polish-American culture, heritage and traditions. In Cleveland specifically, our goal is to not only make this a Polish Cultural festival, we also want to celebrate our Polka Heritage as well as the other Eastern European cultures still thriving in Cleveland.

2019 will mark the festival’s 9th anniversary in Cleveland. Every year Dyngus Day continues to grow, and are we excited to share this day with you. This year we made the festival grounds larger on Detroit Ave. and West 58th in the Gordon Arts District and we will polka in the streets with great food and beer vendors alike!…estimated over 45,000 people celebrated Dyngus Day Cleveland across the city in 2018. Come join the biggest polka party of the year!
