About Us

 

The St. Stanislaus Polish Festival is always held on the first Saturday in November on the Church grounds at 4849 Castle Hayne Road in Castle Hayne, NC. Now in its 20th year, the Polish Festival is an annual event that attracts thousands of visitors from near and far.

 

Our patrons look forward to feasting on authentic Polish foods, drinks and a vast assortment of desserts, dancing to live Polka music, and watching the graceful choreography of Polish dancers. We even have our own special beer, ST. STAN'S BALTIC PORTER, a Polish style Porter beer, that was fermented with Lager yeast. Dark in color it accents the use of a large portion of chocolate malt to give this beer a very smooth well rounded chocolate flavor. It is less roasty than most dark beers and has a good portion of caramel malt to add to the flavor. Hops are not used in excess but the hops used are Aurora, Hallertau and Spalt. This beer was brewed by the countries bordering the Baltic Sea, with Poland being the main country producing a Baltic Porter. The St. Stan's Baltic Porter Beer is brewed especially for the Polish Festival by the Front Street Brewery.

 

We also feature a craft sale, raffle, and a variety of entertainment for the children. Some of our attractions may vary from year to year; we do this to maintain the excitement that's earned our Festival such a solid reputation for wholesome family fun!
