Sponsored by the revitalization group Downtown Shenandoah Inc. Saturday, May 19, 2018, 11am to 5pm. It will again include Shenandoah's so-called three Kielbasi Kings---the Capitol Food Market, East Washington St.; Kowaloneks Kielbasy Shop, South Main St. and Lucky's Kielbasi Shop and Deli, West Centre St. The festival's main attraction will be the homemade Kielbasa contest featuring private kielbasa makers using recipes that often have been handed down over generations. The contest will have fresh and smoked categories with contestants competing for the "coveted" Pig Trophy, according to DSI. Judges for the contest will include commercial kielbasa makers Mark Kowalonek of Kowalonek's Kielbasy Shop, Mike Stanakis of the Captiol Food Store and Dave Lukashunas of Lucky's Deli.
The wildly popular festival will also include Ateeco, Inc. Shenandoah, maker of Mrs. T. Pierogies, plus Polish pottery, Matrushka dolls, straw ornaments and varaious eastern European crafts. Live polka music by the All-American Polka Band, a wide variety of ethnic and American food plus games for children and numerous vendors.
