Dyngus Day

What is Dyngus Day?

Buffalo is Dyngus Day central – the #1 city for the historically Polish festivities held the day after Easter commemorating the end of Lent. Few cities in America have as large of a Polish population as Buffalo – and perhaps none Dyngus harder.  While the city’s Broadway-Fillmore Neighborhood – also known as Polonia – has the most partying per square block, the whole county gets in on the fun these days.


Explore Buffalo’s immensely strong Polish heritage, the bars that are gathering spots on Dyngus Day and the many traditions the community shares during the Easter season. When it’s time to Dyngus, Buffalo is the place to be!
