The Polish Cultural Institute has made a tradition of participating in the popular 92nd Street Y Street Festival, and this year it will present its 2009/2010 programs in a booth shared with the Consulate General of Poland in New York and just next door to the booth for the Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow.

The annual 92nd Street Y Street Festival is one of New York City's most popular family street fairs, with an array of offerings ranging from music, dance and spoken-word performances to "International Way," a cultural exhibition featuring several countries.

Visitors to the Polish booths will find information not only about the remarkable highlights of Poland's landscape and history and new travel opportunities, but also about the country's cultural heritage and thriving contemporary art world, the fruits of which can often be seen in the U.S. through Polish Cultural Institute programs. This year, we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the fall of communism and we'll be providing information about a range of events you won't want to miss. You'll also be able to learn about Krakow's vibrant and increasingly popular Jewish Culture Festival, and Warsaw's landmark interactive Museum of the History of Polish Jews, which is currently under construction and will celebrate eight centuries of Jewish life and culture in Poland.
