Broad Street attorney and neighborhood leader, Adrian Baron, is asking for people to help bring about another successful Little Poland Festival, “where everyone can be Polish for the day.”
The 2018 Little Poland Festival will be on April 29th.
Baron has sponsored at GoFundMe fundraiser to support of the Festival.
That fundraising appeal says that,
Since the 1890s, New Britain, Connecticut’s Broad Street neighborhood has served as the heart of New England’s Polish community. To celebrate, local residents and business owners host a Little Poland festival celebrating the neighborhood and the city of New Britain. With leaping folk dancers, live music, arts & crafts, costumed mascots, rides for kids, and amazing food, the festival has quickly grown to be one of Connecticut’s fastest and most sought after events. We don’t charge an admission fee. We do it for our community.
As many as 20,000 people from across Connecticut and beyond have joined New Britain residents in the community celebration on Broad Street.
The fundraising appeal says that,
To pull it off, we need your help. It’s a community effort made up of volunteers who devote their energies to the event. There is only so much we can do. We need your support to help cover the growing expense of hosting such an event including city services, permits, stage rentals, printing costs, band fees, and other rather pricey costs. Please consider supporting this worthwhile event
