Polish-American festival in the National Shrine of our Lady of Czestochowa

August 18, 2006

During 2006, the National Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa celebrates yet another milestone in its history. Forty years ago, over 100,000 people attended an outdoor Mass and ceremony. John Cardinal Krol, in the presence of U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson, dedicated and blessed the newly built Shrine building. It was truly “a day to remember”.

This year the Shrine will also host the 41st Annual Polish American Festival. For two weekends: Sept. 2, 3, 4 (Labor Day Weekend) and Sept. 9, 10 – the Shrine expects to welcome over 20,000 visitors, young and old, to enjoy world class entertainment, amusement rides, delicious Polish and American food, games & prizes, exhibits, special presentations and much, much more. It is a fun time for families and friends.

Each year, we have over a hundred volunteers who gather to help organize and run the Festival. They give their time and energies to setup, build and repair all the tents, booths and attractions. They work very hard to make this annual event possible, but they need your help. This year, a special Festival Sponsorship Program is being started to help with the expense of repairing and replacing many of the 40 year old booths, tents and equipment used during the Festival. We invite individuals and organizations to take part. When you become a Festival Sponsor, a banner will be placed at the location you choose to sponsor displaying your name and/or message. We will also include a full page ad in the Festival Book at no additional charge. This is a wonderful opportunity to show your support of the Shrine and the Festival.

We also invite you to include your business/organization in this year’s Festival Book. Your advertisement will reach a wide audience at a nominal cost. Thank you for your support and generosity. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions or need further assistance.

Sincerely yours,
Helena Masiorski
For the Festival Committee
