Traditional Polonezkoy Cherry Festival is held in Polonezkoy every year on the 1st and 2nd weekends of June. (However, the festival has not been held in the last 3 years.)
During the Cherry Festival, shows of folklore teams from Poland, various cultural activities, exhibitions, concerts and recitals are held in village.
The festival is also a symbol of the culture, friendship and hospitality between Turkey and Poland for more than 160 years.
It was a unique event in Istanbul. Parties, cultural organizations, concerts, folk dancing and many activities take place during the festival and many locals and tourists come visit the village and have joyful moments.
We hope the authorities may plan to add the cherry festival on their calendar soon.
