Ah, pierogies. There's nothing quite like 'em. For 11 years, the folks in Whiting, Indiana, have been celebrating the delicious eastern European dumplings—stuffed with potato, meat, cheese or kraut— with a three-day celebration.
Visitors to this northern Indiana fest can spend their time carousing tables packed with arts and crafts, warm up their pitching arms at the dunking booth or dine on a variety of scrumptious snacks like polish sausages, fried corn on the cob and potato latkes. Even the family pet can get in on the act with special pooch-only pierogies flavored with puppy-friendly peanut butter.
No visit to Pierogi Fest would be complete without catching an afternoon performance by Mr. Pierogi and the Pieroguettes as well as the pierogi toss, polka parade and a game of Eastern Bloc Jeopardy.
Before packing up your "Hey, nice pierogies" T-shirt and hitting the road, make sure to grab a box of those delicious dumplings to go!
