Taste of Polonia Banner Program

Help make this year's Taste of Polonia the biggest ever.  If you know of a retail location which has a fence that would allow us to hang a Taste of Polonia banner, please contact our office at 773-777-8898 x103.  We have a banner exchange program in place this year.

We would gladly hang a banner from any retail establishment at the Festival which allows us to hang our banner at their location two weeks prior.

Please Check-in at the Copernicus "CENTER"

Street Survivor Band page

Last year we heard Southern Rock music was popular at the festival. 

For 2013 we searched for a professional band that had a great Southern Rock song list and sound which we found in Street Survivor. 

For 17 years, the band has toured worldwide. Their show is a tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd’s music, as well as that of most popular southern legends Molly Hatchet, ZZ Top, Doors, Bob Seger, Bad Company, Foghat, Bad Company and the Allman Brothers. 

STREET SURVIVOR has toured with Foghat, 38 Special, Marshall Tucker, Molly Hatchet, Uriah Heep, Dickey Betts, Gov't Mule, and opened for many others.

Street Survivor is our featured band on Saturday night. Visit HERE to read a bit more and find links to additional music samples.

Tributosaurus Fan Delight


Popular Tributosaurus will get us off to a great start on Friday night.  We thought they'd be the perfect band to get the festival rolling.

Friday the band becomes Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young which is a rare treat, served up for your enjoyment. 

Tip:  Connect with us on Foursquare for a cool special.
