Let’s Make Pierogi!

Pierogi are a core part of Polish cuisine – and where better to explore their huge variety than the 16th Pierogi Festival! Between 15 and 19 August, the Small Market Square fills with delicious smells of myriad fillings: meat with fried onion, spinach, sweet cream cheese, blueberries and any other delicacies the summer has on offer. There will be a whopping 15 stands, so take care not to overeat! The festival competition changes format this year: instead of searching for best new flavour, the jury assesses traditional cream – stuffed with potatoes and cheese – with the best receiving the coveted statuette of St. Jacek. Participants also compete for the Casimir the Great statuette awarded by the audience. But the festival isn’t just about sampling delicious flavours and fragrances – there are also workshops in making pierogi led by chefs from some of Kraków’s finest restaurants. Events are accompanied by florist displays held as part as the Magical Power of Bouquets events and concerts held on a stage erected on the Small Market Square, making learning and cooking more fun!
