Hello, Cześć, Boozhoo, Tansi, Bonjour!

It’s been a long 2 years since we were able to be together to celebrate Roncesvalles Village, and the unique heritage of this neighbourhood, at our weekend Roncesvalles Polish Festival.

Coming this September 17 & 18, and building on the long history of the Roncesvalles Polish Festival, which include fan favourites, like Polka and pierogi, in conjunction with a fresh focus to celebrate a broader range of local artists, musicians and, of course, food.

We are also thrilled to share that the Roncesvalles Village community music and arts festival, Roncy Rocks! which previously took place in June annually, will now be part of the Roncesvalles Polish Festival, which means at this years’ Roncesvalles Polish Festival we will all get even more of what makes Roncy Rock!

Combining old world charm with today’s Roncesvalles Village; well-known as one of Toronto’s most vibrant, unique, and creative communities, attendees will find an amazing variety of global cuisines from local eateries, exceptional shopping, and quality services, as well as performances by talented local artists and musicians, including Indigenous programming and family friendly activities!

Whether it’s your 1st time or your 15th, we can’t wait to say Hello, Cześć, Boozhoo, Tansi, and Bonjour and welcome you to Roncesvalles Village!

Now entering its fifteenth year, the Roncesvalles Polish Festival; A Celebration of Food, Art, Music & Our Community is made possible by the Roncesvalles Village BIA; made up of more than 270 members in Toronto’s West End, serving our community of more than 16 thousand residents for over 35 years.
