Polish Fest organizers have been forced to make the sad decision to cancel Polish Fest 2020 due to coronavirus.

The Board of Directors of the Polish Heritage Alliance previously postponed the festival in March after being told the Summerfest grounds would not be open and available to host.

"It was our hope to reschedule to a later date, unfortunately, this is not feasible," said the board in a press release.

While Polish Fest won't be happening, lookout for smaller cultural events at the Polish Center of Wisconsin later on in 2020. Information on these can be found on Facebook.

Polish Fest will be back in 2021 for the 40th anniversary of the festival from June 18-20.
