Bakers Barbara Lulkiewicz, Helen Bujak, Karolina Juszczak and Hanna Rembowski prepare plum cakes for the Polish Festival.

Volunteers finished up hand folding 7,000 golabki, or cabbage rolls, and then they fired up the ovens. After hours of labor, out came 40 trays of plum crumble cake – and cheesecake, apple cake and angel wings, a light fried pastry dusted with powdered sugar.

“It’s a lot of work,” said Helen Bujak, a St. Stanislaus Church member who helps prepare food for the Polish Festival. She has been making stuffing for the golabki every year since the first festival, arriving at 6 a.m. to fry onions. 

“But this is our donation,” said another baker, Barbara Lulkiewicz, as she takes a break from cutting plums and mixing the sugary, buttery crumble topping.

The 2012 Polish Festival is Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 22-23, in Oregon’s historic Polish neighborhood, at 3916 N Interstate Ave. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, and from noon to 6 p.m., Sunday. Admission is free.

The festival, which draws thousands of people annually with performances, food and drink, is a fundraiser for the Polish Library Hall and St. Stanislaus Church.

Proceeds from past years’ festival made possible a remodel of the parish hall, and this year’s event will support a kitchen update and new roof for the church.

Oregon's first Polish families were predominately from the Carpathian Mountains of southern Poland and eastern Poland near present-day Ukraine. The families created a Polish National Alliance chapter in 1892 and built the historic St. Stanislaus Roman Church in 1907 and Polish Library Hall in 1911. Both landmarks display Romanesque architecture common in southern Poland, and have been officially recognized as state historic sites.

The parish's namesake is St. Stanislaus Szczepanowski, martyr of the early church. He was archbishop of Krakow in the 11th Century. One of his successors as archbishop of Krakow, was Archbishop Karol Wojtyla, who would become Pope John Paul II in 1978.

Free parking is available at the adjacent Kaiser Permanente complex lots and garages.

Visitors can also take the Light Rail Yellow Line to the Overlook Station. For more information and up to date performance schedules, log on to PortlandPolonia.org. Volunteers are still needed. To help, contact the parish office at 503-317-6930.
