Doughy. Cheesy. Filled with potato. What's not to love about pierogi?
The Polish dumpling should be celebrated and Port Richmond, where there's no shortage of the comfort food, agrees. A pierogi festival is scheduled for Saturday, May 4, at Campbell Square.
Eateries from the neighborhood and across the city will serve pierogies in the park from noon to 5 p.m.
Attendees can eat, learn how to make the dumplings and shop more than 60 local vendors. The event will include live music and a performance by a Polish dance group, too. For kids, there will be face painting and a balloon artist.
There are also two festival T-shirts that can be purchased online and picked up Saturday, or purchased at the event. Proceeds from the shirts will go to maintaining Campbell Square.
Saturday, May 4
Noon to 5 p.m. | Free to attend
