A LITTLE LIST OF WHAT WE THINK IS AWESOME IN THE DRIFTLESS REGION THIS FALL...

KASHUBIAN CAPITAL CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

The Kashubian Capital Centennial Celebration’s (KCC2020) is finally kicking off this fall (2021) in Winonoa, Minnesota! But what the heck is a Kashubian?! The Polish Kashubian immigrants played an integral role in the birth and success of Winona, and 2020 marked the 100th anniversary of 2021 the Stake Wars, the struggle that birthed the regional boundaries of modern Poland and the Kashubian region (North Central) also part of Pomerania, home to Bytow, Winona’s Sister City. In an effort to celebrate this Polska Party, events are being planned throughout 2021-22. A “Banquet in the StreetKashubian Style” will be held on September 17 at 5 pm on Third Street in downtown Winona. Tables will be set up along the street and folks will be invited to participate in one of the largest potluck dinners celebrating Kashubian and Polish food, with music and dancing to follow with the Loud Mouth Brass Band. Then on October 9, an afternoon and evening full of Polish celebration will commence from 2-10 pm at Levee Park in Winona with the Jeny Kochany (Oh My Gosh) Fest. All things Kashubian will be represented with a Live @ the Levee concert featuring a Polka Battle of the Bands, a Polka dance off ($100 Prize!), dance lessons from the Dolina Dancers in Kashubian style, food trucks, art, a Bloedows Donut eating Contest, and more.
