St. Florian Strawberry Festival in Hamtramck

Get your fill of strawberry treats, Polish culture and plenty of fun at the 51st annual St. Florian Strawberry Festival, May 4-5, 2019, in Hamtramck.

What’s sweeter than spring in Michigan? How about a cultural festival full of delectable strawberry treats? Find this and more at St. Florian Parish in Hamtramck during the 51st annual St. Florian Strawberry Festival, which is set for May 4-5, 2019.

The fun at this annual May festival kicks off with the Firefighter March and Mass in downtown Hamtramck on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.

Gather at the Hamtramck Firehouse to celebrate firefighters and follow the procession of local departments and rigs to St. Florian Parish for mass.

After mass, local people of Polish decent, and those who are not of Polish decent but want to partake in traditional Polish fun, are welcome to celebrate the culture through non-stop Polka dancing to tunes by The Ambassadors Polka Band, New Generation Polkas and other talented musicians.

You’ll also find raffles with stupendous prizes and kids activities.

But it doesn’t stop there. The true draw at this annual fest is the Polish food. Get your fill of pierogies, kielbasa and other traditional eats, knock it back with a beer (we’re sure you can use one, mom and dad!) and top if off with a freshly baked Polish treat.

And for those that don’t dig the Polish dishes, try one of the many strawberry desserts that give this fest its namesake.

The fest officially runs noon-11 p.m. on Saturday, May 3, and again from 1 to 10 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. Admission to the festival and parking are both free.
