On April 1, the day after Easter, everyone is Polish for Dyngus Day. It’s a wild and wacky day celebrating the end of Lent and the beginning of Spring, involving Polish foods, beer, polka music, a parade through Buffalo’s historically Polish East Side and crazy fun everywhere you turn. Come find out why Buffalo is the Dyngus Day Capital of the World. Na zdrowie!
Bite into some freshly made pierogi and golabki at the R & L Lounge. Or head across the street to the famous Broadway Market to try treats from dozens of Polish-American vendors. The Polonia District is the place to be for authentic Polish eats this Dyngus season!
St. Patrick’s Day Parade
