Pierogi Fest®, is an opportunity for the residents to celebrate their heritage while poking a little fun at themselves at the same time. With over a quarter million visitors to Whiting, it takes over 300 volunteers for Pierogi Fest to run safely, smoothly, and successfully.
Besides lots of pierogi and an array of food vendors, you’ll find a one of a kind parade on Friday, featuring women dressed in housecoats and babushkas like grandmothers (or bushas), the lawnmower brigade in sandals and socks, plus Mr. Pierogi and Ms. Paczki.
This is a truly unique event, so be sure not to miss the Mr. Pierogi Songfest, the International Dancers, Buscias’ Cooking Show, Polka Dancing Contest, and Pierogi Parade on Friday night! Other special events include the Mr. Pierogi Songfest, the Pierogi Toss and Pierogi Eating Contest.
The parade, the pride of Whiting Indiana, and Pierogi Festival has received countrywide recognition having been featured on the Food Network and the Travel Channel.
