Held in Downtown Whiting, Pierogi Fest provides an annual opportunity for people to return to their roots, celebrate their heritage, and have a lot of fun. The incredible event draws more than 300,000 people from across the nation and the world. Numerous live music acts will be performing throughout the three-day event across multiple stages, and dozens of food vendors will be serving up tasty eats to enjoy.
It was initially created to honor Eastern European heritage, but now, the festival is inclusive of all cultures and honors them. All foods from all nationalities are welcome! This year, Pierogi Fest will be returning and it will be held on July 28, July 29, and July 30!
